This week’s route takes us down the Vale of Clwyd once again. The route is 54.9 miles in length, and climbs 3,121ft – and can be found on Strava.

This route takes in four loops, and starts at Saints Gym Meliden, before picking up at Rhuddlan, and heading back on itself out towards the Waen, through Trefnant, top road to Denbigh, the steep way to Henllan, with the highest point being at Groes, before dropping back down to Denbigh.

The Five course to Llandyrnog, along to Llanfair DC, before Ruthin, Rhewl for the back way through Llanynys, and off to Llanrhaeadr before dropping back down to Denbigh again before home via the main road to St Asaph and bypass home.

Guess what – I’m on the rota again this Sunday – weather looking very cold and windy, so trying to stay low – kicking off at 9.30am from Saints, Nature Reserve at 9.45am – see you then.” — Mark Allen (Club Secretary)
