Mark

Here is the route we done last time, we may make a detour on the way out and climb the tumble from Blaenavon first drop into Abergavenny quick cuppa, then up the tumble the official way then back into Abergavenny for the world biggest baps (you don't want to carry one up the tumble) the back through Usk towards Chepstow.

How did this go? Did you stick to the route you plotted? Thinking about giving this a go tomorrow ... what about the coffee stop (where was it?) safe place for bike? I'm always wary about leaving it when I'm on my own ...

Great ride, when you come back down the tumble follow the route into abergavenny you will need to walk the bike down a one way street the when you go through high street you will see a massive car park pull in for the best outdoor cafe in Wales. Safe for your bike you will probably see loads of bikers there.

As in large bikers in leathers who will have no interest in your bicycle. Good route although Chris did promise us a tailwind on the way back but that just never materialised.

No frigging tailwind - we wuz cheated - I even had 8 miles of block headwind up the A38 home when my legs were on autopilot!

As Ricky says, great cafe ....with bacon rolls the size of half a cycling helmet ( check out Ricky's Facebook page!)

Rode this today, fantastic route, hardly any cars about, mostly bikers (both sorts Smile ) The Tumble starts off a beast eh ... apparently I was sleeping up that bit though as heart rate was only about 140! Room for improvement me thinks Smile
