With over 9 river crossings the Strata Florida is a very fun legal byway in Wales. It’s wide enough for big 4x4s but also great fun on two wheels. But be warned…it is a wet ride! Both with a lot of puddles and standing water that tend to been murky with hidden rocks, and also from the many rivers, it can be a sporty ride – making it my best green lane. This was a day riding with two friends, I was on the Honda Africa Twin along with Alex my husband, and then Nick was on a Tenere 700 – all three ADV bikes are largely standard with the addition of some extra protection bars / plates. We were also running 50:50 road to off road tyres, so nothing fancy. We’d had a few dry days so the water was manageable on the big ADV bikes but certainly some hairy deep parts, with 9 river crossings the Strata Florida is not one for after heavy rain.
This is quite possibly… one of my favourite byway green lanes in the UK.
I hope you enjoy watching.
