Cool Anybody up for a ride to god knows where from London next week for a week or so?

Hi,
I have a bit of time off after working quite hard for the last few months and am thinking of heading somewhere for a week or so from around the 12th or so. I am male 34 yrs, easy going Australian living in the UK for 4 yrs, have ridden through Centeral and South america before and have been working in Gibraltar for a few months, and want to continue the Melinin oozing from my skin. I am riding a 94 r100 Gs, reliable bike.

I am not sure where to go as I was supposed to go on a cricket tour around Cornwall, but that has been cancelled (Shit).It is bloody hot anywhere this way at the moment. Is anyone interested or have any ideas for me? What is france like this time of year? Bloody expensive though and i bet the girls are not as sexy as the spanish!!!! I'm not sure...

So if you are up for a not so serious ride and camping where ever, Get in touch

Troy

Gday Troy,

It'd be great to join you but thats about a month to early for me I was planning a ride may be up to Finnland in about a month or so if you are keen for another ride.

I think the french girls can give the spanish a run for their money as i saw the most beautiful woman in Paris, oh no that was Spain na they are both good it's so hard to pick but i'm sure you will have fun trying.

If i was you I would maybe try the Pyrenees that might be a nice ride through the mountains and it might be a bit cooler and cheaper than france if you go on the spanish side.

From another 30+ aussie staying in London.
