Quick Blast Around Moel Y Ci

(Only Me)

I had to get out of the house today so I went for a quick loop from the house, around MYC and back, up the road and down towards Rhiwlas from Mynydd Llandygai on the byway reminded me of being on holiday last summer, my introduction to downhilling. The route was rocky, flowing and fast, it gave that arm pump feeling and a real buzz. Definitely worth the uphill.

Arthur Daily! First ride in the Clwyds

Had a really good ride on this route from the Bixefax north east wales guide. Unfortunately, the weather was poor so no photos as I couldn’t see much. The route is good, only took 2 hours when the guide suggests 3-5hours and the track was pretty boggy, the descriptions also don’t match their map. But hey, it was a good bit of exercise.

I will upload the route to the 'Route Downloads' Section

Birthday Biking Bonanza

(Kelly, Rachel, Sam Will and I)

A great day out with a long ride planned, fantastic start and then it all went wrong. At the furthest point from Llanberis (where the cars were) my rear mech decided to jump into my wheel and rip off, so I was left with bent hanger, useless chain, no rear mech and damaged spokes....still it was only 25miles by road the cars...

I had a good day, Cheers
