Up, Down and a Bit in the Middle
posted by Anon. in Club Meetings
Club member, Graham Piper, entertained the club with his digital images taken during his 8 day trip from Berkshire to Scotland.
He rode his Honda CBF600 motorbike to the Peak District, staying at Holmfirth (the location for the Last of the Summer Wine series) before crossing over to Lake Windermere where he met up with a fellow motor cyclist on his Honda SP1 for the trip up to Scotland.
Going through Gretna Green the pair avoided Glasgow to make their way westwards via Loch Lomond to the Isle of Skye, where they spent some time riding around the Isle before returning to the mainland to visit Applecross, the area of a recent TV series. They then made their way to Pitlochry and began the ride down to Darlington, where his friend lives. Finally, for the last stretch, Graham rode home on his own.
Throughout the trip he had taken some lovely shots of the scenery and villages he passed through showing that the UK has plenty to offer with its own beautiful countryside. In particular, Coral Beach was particularly stunning.
Many thanks Graham for putting together this interesting talk.
