If I get caught sleeping in my van by opportunistic villains?
I ran out of time this year but the plan is to do a solo roadtrip around the new Welsh uplift spots. I want to see if I can get my fill of proper DH riding in the UK between annual Euro-trips.
It's a long drive down and I'd like to start at the Forest of Dean and work my way back via Antur Stiniog, Bikepark Wales and Revolution.
BUT...at each location I'll be looking for somewhere safe and quiet to sleep in the van. I've got the knack of stealth camping up here but Wales is all new to me. I've never been there and some of these bikeparks are apparently located in some pretty deprived areas. You also hear about a lot of opportunistic theft of shiny things.
I don't like to park in the middle of nowhere if I can help it. Can you find relatively peaceful residential streets where you can blend in with the other vehicles?
Or will I be murdered?
