When Petra was meditating in Hereford, I cycled with Steve through Wales on the Lon Las Cymru (Welch for The Green Lane through Wales). This 400km route runs from Cardiff to Holyhead on quiet country lanes and often on abandoned railways. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the signposting, the scenery and the weather. Steve took pictures and put them here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/
It was great to see Steve again. We met almost 5 years ago in Lhasa and always stayed in contact via email. I contributed a little bit to Steve's latest book on bike touring (The Adventure Cycling Handbook, by Stephen Lord), my picture is actually on the back cover.
