Riding around the UK/Irish country side.

Discussion in 'Roads, Touring, Journeys, and Travel' at netrider.net.au started by OC1, Apr 13, 2007.

  1. Has anyone hired a bike and gone for a days (maybe a few days) ride around the country side in these countries?

    Whilst I think hiring a bike in London would be a nightmare, the countryside would be a relaxing ride if only spending a day seeing a few sights.

  4. Hmmm...I'm from the uk, and when i was there in september for my sisters wedding i tried to hire a bike - but was nigh on imposisble in newcastle - my mates told me i could use theirs - but was told that dont bother hiring them out so much as they are so cheap to buy...

    Now I've gotta admit that Newcastle is a lot diffferent to London - in more ways than you could imagine - and I didnt look into it too far as I was busy with wedding and hen do's etc...but the roads wqould be well worth a blatt if you can do it...

    Good Luck...

  5. Cold. Cold. And wet. Did I mention cold?

    And people from Geordieland speak a sort of pseudo English dialect. Quickly. It's cold. And snows all year around. :p

    But the girls are gorgeous! Or is that just Kerry? And don't challenge anyone from the NE to a drinking competition. You will lose and probably die.

    Im from Scotland and benn in Oz almost 5 years. I never had a license over there but I do now and im dying to do the roads as its Twisty heaven. You dont have to go far in Scotland to find a twisty road. Infact it be harder to find a straight one.
