Welsh mountains 10 August
« on: August 09, 2012, 02:44:58 PM »
I know its (very) short notice, and I can't find any owners on the map in the area, But . . . .

I am taking the crossrunner on another tour of the Welsh mountains tomorrow If anybody wants to meet up along the way.

Will be heading to crossgates cafe for brekkie around 10am, then through Rhyader, over the mountain road to Devils Bridge, and on to Tregaron for a cuppa.

Tregaron to Beulah Mountain road, taking in the infamous Devils Staircase, up to Builth Wells, then through Hundred House, back to the A44 for Leominster. From Leominster Ill be having a 'Spirited' ride home for an after christening party in my local for a few cold ones!

As I say, its short notice, but if anybody fancies meeting up, shout up and ill send you my number.

Went off for a 260 mile ride today before I had seen this - so that's my allowance for this week.
Would have joined you otherwise.
Went cross country over to Forest of Dean and rode around that area for a while and then home via Tintern, Severn Bridge and Cirencester - super day out.

Shame you cant make it, I'll have to post earlier next time I take a day off! Sounds like you had a good day out yourself though.

Give me a shout by PM if you are planning a midweeker as I am usually available provided sun is out.

Took a different route over the mountains this time, and it got a bit narrow, in fact, more like a footpath . . . ok, so it WAS a footpath! :005:
Who said crossrunners have no off road capabilities?!!! :152:

Reminds me of an incident in France earlier in the year - diversions took us off GPS planned route - but GPS then decided too take us down a narrow track which looked like it was going to end up in a field. Me on Crossrunner and another guy on M/Strad were ok but other guys really struggled.
