This has been running for a while, and you may see some familiar faces in the article too.

In short – bike mechanics, social enterprise, bikes, cyclists, in a local brewery with a really really nice bloke called Tom.

Good heavens – why would you not? Next one up Thursday 22nd September 2016.

Gran Fondo Conwy 2016

Gran Fondo Conwy 2016

This popular event is back again this year, and will be taking place on Sunday 17th April 2016.

The event comes in three formats Bach, Canol, Mawr as well as one aimed at the juniors.

“The Gran Fondo Conwy features some of North Wales most famous landmarks and best kept secrets including the awe inspiring Great Orme in Llandudno (which includes our storm the Orme challenge), the historical town of Denbigh, the iconic Llanwrst Bridge, the glorious Llyn Brenig as well as travelling along the stunning North Wales coastline with breathtaking views across the Irish Sea. The route also takes riders from Blychau to Llanrwst following the exact same route that Bradley Wiggins, Mark Cavendish et al. cycled on as part of the recent Tour of Britain routes.”

Entries are available through the Gran Fondo Conwy website – along with GPX routes, and profiles.

This is usually a well attended, and well marshalled event by Always Aim High events – who you will also know from the Etape Eryri (12th June 2016).

Great Orme Road Race, congratulations to Alan!

Great Orme Road Race, congratulations to Alan!

Many congratulations to Alan for his second place in this years Great Orme Road Race, Llandudno.

Another great success for the GORR. Fantastic weather, shone down on organiser, spectator and rider as lap after lap took it’s toll on the competitors.

Alan – President of VC Melyd, Level 3 British Cycling Coach, Youth Development for Welsh Cycling, giant, and all road nice guy – was so pleased with his victory he was promptly sick on himself after crossing the line. The very stuff of heroes* I think you will agree.

Well done Alan – and well earned. Chapeau!

* Very much in the long held traditions of the approval of the Sufferlandrians and Velominati.

Intermediate ride for Sunday, meeting at Saints 9am but will pass through Rhuddlan around 9.20am. I thought we hadn’t been to the Orme for a while so that’s the plan unless weather, busy traffic, Wild Wales, etc. gets in the way : )” — Susan Seller
