Ride Out Saturday 13th June & Other Stuff.

I’ve missed a couple of Ride Outs but determined to get going again. 

So, here we go!

Saturday the 13th of June. Meeting at Caerphilly Mountain Snack Bar at 9.am for a 9.30 departure.

Heading for ‘Staylittle’ and Llyn Clewedog.  This picture was taken on a previous ride out and it is a spectacular location.  The road from the lake through Staylittle to Llanbrynmair is a cracker too!

So come and join us for a grand day out.


Some Other Stuff……..

Cycle Event & Road Closures.

Sunday the 14th of June sees a major cycle road race event come to South East Wales. This brings with it some extensive road closures as the Pro Cycle Race & accompanying public Sportive event, will take place on a ‘Closed Road’ Circuit, starting in Cardiff, heading out to Newport, Caerleon, Abergavenny, Blaenavon, Caerphilly Mountain back to Cardiff passing Roath Park Lake and back to Cathays Park for the finish.

Plan ahead to stay out of the way if you are not interested, or to get your view point if you are!
