Right!!

If the weather stays this will be a fantastic ride! If not, well its Wales, so it will still be great riding, just a bit moist :D


To be clear, meet at 10am at the first visitor centre you come to, which is the start of the Wall and Penhydd.
Once everyone has their act together, head on over the road and up the easy social ride to Whites Level. Gives a nice warm up and time to chat.
Loop of Whites, maybe do the Black DH part, though this can be easily bypassed too. To the cafe for giant jacket spud and cake. Should be about 2.5 hrs.

After this will be a shorter loop of Penhydd, couple of shortcuts which cut out some climbing and dull fireroad depending. About 1hr-1.5hr depending on route.

Done for tea!

Will be usual exchange of pa rts, so come cashed up Smile

OK - names down if your coming so you don't get forgotten!
