One gear is all you need…

…. if all you are doing is riding to the Pub! After a bit of confusion over the start point, and a bail-out from James due to Friday traffic, the two Alan’s and myself wandered around the levels for a few miles before ending up at The Crossway’s Inn for a quick one (or two

FlanRou ‘Ribinoù’

James, Trev and myself did the FlanRou ‘Ribinoù’ on Sunday 10th. I won’t bore you with details (you’ll hear all about it I’m sure), but suffice to say we had a grand day out riding some familiar and unfamiliar local roads and tracks. Here are a couple of pics of us in all our muddied an bloodied

Magnificent 7 return

We prevailed on the ‘Travail’

James, Alan, Guy and myself had a brilliant ride around Wales today on the Trefil Travail.. a 100km event starting from Coryton in Cardiff.

Helfa Cymraeg Benjamin Allen ar

Guy Buckland, aka @mendiprouleur, Peter Holyfield and myself did the ‘Helfa’ 300km on Saturday. It was my first 300km, and I have to say I was pretty apprehensive, especially when I realised the route was over distance based on the Garmin track of the ACBers Luke Joy-Smith and Paul Rainbow – 312km or 194 miles in old
