Both routes – Sunday 12th February

Thank you to Graeme for this weeks route – 62 miles and 5,500ft of climbing, available on Strava.

The route has a number of turn back points including post Orme, and post Sychnant.

Those of you with Speedplay pedals and lacking the ability to levitate would be well advised to take FULL COVERS with them if they are intended to do the Sychnant Pass climb, as the coastal path stretch from the Conwy will very likely involve walking on sand.

My turn to plan for Sunday this week, so let’s try a coastal classic – Great Orme and Sychnant. Progressively bigger hills as the route goes on, but some options for cutting short depending on weather (or fitness!). Cafe in Conwy – after the Sychnant – you have to earn your cake! 9.30 from Saints, 9.45 at Rhuddlan. See you Sunday.” — Graeme Peacock

Intermediate Route – Sunday 12th July 2015

This weeks longer route is courtesy of Sarah. Distance 62.6 mile, with 4,816ft of climbing.

The route heads out to Abergele, up through Betws Yn Rhos – before climing up to the top of Black Cat hill, before heading south to join at the top of Llanrwst and the descent into Llanrwst. Heading then over the bridge, to head up the West side to Conwy and back along the front to Abergele.

Sunday’s intermediate route, cafe stop in Llanwrst.Donna is doing the longer ride but hoping we’ll head in a similar direction. Everyone welcome.” — Sarah Overson
