Sunday “Devils and Dams” Club Ride: 18th October 2020

Thanks to Russell for putting this 2nd Wheelers awayday together, and it’s fair to say it is a bit special. The route starts in Builth Wells, crosses the Cambrian mountains via the notorious Devils Staircase, before returning through the Elan Valley.

There’s no denying there are some steep bits – but they’re really not that long, walkable in fact. We’ll take it steady and all get around together.

If you like your scenery on the spectacular side, this one has it in spades. Cancel any plans you may have and put this ride in your diary – you really don’t want to miss out on this one.

( All counties for the drive to and ride are currently open – there is a fallback awayday plan should further Welsh lockdowns scupper the plan )

See you at the Groe car park (£4 all day ) in Built Wells at 09:00

**CANCELLED***Sunday Club Ride: 4th October 2020

Hi Folks, this ride has been cancelled due to an Amber weather Warning of heavy rain and 40+ mph winds. Sorry.

Something for the time constrained this week. A 40 mile no café stop ride up the Gorge which should have you home for midday. There’s the possibility of an add on ride afterwards if there’s enough interest – we’ll decide on the day.

Rule of 6 applies – if we’ve more than that we’ll split into 2 groups

See you outside Priory School at 09:00

Wednesday Club Ride: 30th September 2020

How about a bit of Belmont hill this week? Aside from having been slightly neglected by the club of late, it's the chosen hill for the closed road Hill Climb event being staged by the UOBCC on 11th October. In a moment of madness, a couple of Wheelers have chucked their names into the hat. So why not come along Wednesday to see what they've let themselves in for.

See you outside of Priory School at 18:00  ( and don't forget your lights! )

Wednesday Evening Club Ride: 23rd September 2020

A chewy ride planned for Sunday, so we thought something a bit more inclusive for this Wednesday. Just a few weeks before the clocks change and we're plunged into darkness, so why not get your lights on charge and join us for this “not too hilly, not too flat” Goldilocks route?

I rode the route with a large bag of asphalt and a stiff broom earlier today, just to make personally sure there was nothing to interfere with your cycling pleasure!

Rule of 6 applies – if we’ve more than that we’ll split into 2 groups

See you outside Priory School at 6pm

Sunday Club Ride 27th September 2020

Something a bit different this week - a ride over the Bridge to climb the famous “Tumble” near Abergavenny.

Start time is 09:00 from Aust ( parking just of the A403 down New Passage Road ), or 06:45 from Priory if you fancy a longer day out.

Anticipated refreshments will be an Ice-cream at the top of the tumble ( hopefully ) followed by a café stop in Abergavenny before heading for home.

Group size is limited to 6. If we’ve more on the day we’ll split in to two groups, maybe with one visiting the café before the climb.
