7th April – Tanygrisiau
Having decided that March is not a good month for the initial riding season to start, and having had the previous two March rideouts cancelled due to inclement weather, I was very pleased to see a dry forecast for this months event.
Seventeen riders turned out at Montford Bridge and after the obligatory coffee and bacon bap headed off over the hills to Bala for a leisurely morning coffee break.
Lunch was at Tanygrisiau café which was bathed in glorious sunshine, the likes of which have not been seen on my rideouts for some years. I think the nickname of ‘Rain Bringer’ is grossly unfair.
After lunch the group travelled onwards across some very scenic hilltops to Rhug for afternoon tea.
The guess the mileage competition was won, due to an almost tied guess by Alex Collier and Simon Plevin who both guessed within 0.5 of a mile (133.5miles)
