My original plan was to try to make it to Ireland for a quickie tour. However, a poor weather forecast and the airline losing my luggage forced me to drop back and punt. Instead, I decided to focus on three National Parks in the north of England. The Peak District, the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors National Parks.
Starting out from Nottingham, I headed to Matlock Bath on the southern edge of the Peak District. Matlock Bath has been a tourist site since warm springs were discovered there. Nowadays, it’s a major Sunday biking destination seeing close to 1000 bikers on summer weekends. I secured a room at a bed & breakfast for the night.
I’m a Canadian ex-pat working in the oil exploration industry. I’m currently employed in Saudi Arabia and decided to take advantage of the opportunity to travel as much of the world as I can. I keep a motorcycle stored in Europe and take trips on it every chance I get.
This blog is a collection of motorcycle trips I have taken over the years. I hope these reports entertain and/or inspire you to take a trip of your own. Feel free to post your comments and suggestions.... full info
