Saturday 9th August - Welsh Epic Empty
PostSubject: Saturday 9th August - Welsh Epic   Saturday 9th August - Welsh Epic EmptyWed Jul 30, 2014 11:18 pm

I am planning on cycling up to North Wales to visit some family. Route will be around 137 miles with about 10,000 feet of climbing. If anyone would like to join me for the first leg from Bristol to Monmouth then I'd be happy of the company.

Here's the route for the Welsh Epic. Looks like Ricky is joining me for the ride to North Wales which is good news as it gives me someone to draft. Looking to leave about 06:30 so if anyone wants to join us to Monmouth then we can meet you at the Aztec roundabout at 06:45

Ever tackled anything like this before ?

I would like to do this but I haven't got a Garmin and I'm useless with directions so a little worried about getting lost on the way back.

Anyone going from near my way that I can meet up with who's willing to ride back with me?

Barry, almost impossible to get lost on way back from Monmouth .It's just the one main road back into Chepstow.Over the bridge and home you go.
