The motorbike finally got an outing today. Dean decided we’d go for a ride out to Brecon as it was a reasonable distance to give the ‘bike a run out and it holds good memories for him.
It took just over an hour to get there and it has to be said, the weather was typical – overcast, windy and showery! There are plenty of places to park with the only odd thing being you have to Pay & Display (£1 for two hours) even a motorbike. That’s fair enough that you have to pay but how do you stop someone pinching your ticket?? We took a photo in the end and wrote our number plate on the ticket so it wasn’t transferrable. Maybe people are more honest in Wales so it won’t be an issue..
Again, it was a very brief visit just to get an idea of the place and we’ll definitely come back. There are a few campsites nearby so we’ll camp overnight with the ‘bike next time. We’ll need to do a bit of research on that though first.
We did find a lovely coffee shop called The Lounge (situated on the High Street) that doubles up as a nightclub in the evening as far as we could tell. The ladies serving behind the counter gave us a really friendly welcome and we had two lovely cappuccinos and a cookie for £3 each. They also provide free Wifi.
Dean rode us safely back but now he’s in pain as his left elbow continues to give him grief. That’s now been five months he’s been in pain, and we thought it had been fixed by the chiropractor but sadly not. Injections might be the next step but we’ll see how he goes over the next month to six weeks.
