    I am going to go where I have been pining to get back to for years, the West of Ireland. Quiet roads, old world feel, fantastic food, excellent drink! Friendly people, oh yes, can't wait. The area around Connemara, the Aran Islands and the Burren is perfect to explore by bike. I used to visit there when I was young. And Galway City has a lovely refreshing feel to it.

    Blackheath, London
    Bits of Colorado/Wyoming - only day rides as I will be travelling with the family in a RV, but I am sure I'll be able to find the odd hill to tackle. Then some solo meandering in southern California, between LA and the border.

    Quite a gentile route but stunning scenery so I'm seeing friends/family interested in doing it with me ..

    Was hoping to cycle the Rheine from its source in switzerland back to Bristol UK with a few stop offs but i just dont thnk i'll have the time this year. I have some backdated pay from an old job coming at some point in the next year so Im now leaning towards just doing a few short trips as and when this year and saving to do a big Europe tour next summer :smile:
