This Sunday the 4th September 2016 saw the 37 mile Mountain Time Trial, the final event in this years season. The course running out and up from above Denbigh towards Bwlchau and then up onto Denbigh Moors before a left alongside Llyn Brenig, and then down the others side to Cerrigydridion, and back to Ruthin. The final stretch heading back towards Denbigh, into the business park – and a cruel uphill finish.
The weather was gusty and overcast after overnight heavy rain – traditionally an end of season celebrated event – this year saw a hardy ten riders turn up to undergo the discomfort of 37 miles of pain with the added bonus of up and down thrown in.
