This weeks Sunday club ride route supplied by Sally – taking in 58 Miles and 4,075ft of climbing. This route heads EAST into England, and does not collect from Rhuddlan Nature Reserve. It can be found on Strava here.
While the route was announced as being suitable for all it is quite climb heavy at the offset and return – those happy with a faster pace may wish to head back along the A548. Wales Rally GB is taking place in an arc to the left of us, so this route should work around that.
Taking into account Mark’s advice about Wales Rally GB and Paul’s suggestion about the Wirral Way, I have plotted a suggested route for Sunday.
Heading east from Meliden, NOT picking up at Rhuddlan, skirting the foothills to join the Wirral Way at Deeside to take refreshments at Nets Cafe near Burton (good cakes).
Less than 60 gently rolling miles, suitable for us all.
Clocks go back so an extra hour in bed (Donna 🙂 ). Forecast looking promising, 11 degrees and 9mph winds.

This weeks ride is from the Legendary Alan Overson. 57 miles and 4,958ft of climbing. It can be found here on Strava.
The route heads out towards Gronant, so will not be stopping to collect at Rhuddlan.
Heading out through Trelogan, Holywell, Halkyn, to Mold, then the long ascent through Llanferres to the Lanarmon yn lal, then back down Shelf Lite before heading back to Ruthin.
Changes to the route may be made once underway.
The weather is due to be calm and warm, and the route is not expected to be afflicted by pockets of rain and mud as Saturday has been.
For further information or questions – contact the FB group and post on the suggested route. There is one ride planned this Sunday – so this is for all abilities – be there.
This route provided by Mark this week. The route can be found on Strava here. Collecting at Rhuddlan, and heading towards the S Bends before taking the 5 course to Llandyrnog.

“Hi all – my turn to plan & lead the ride for this Sunday. A fresh route that should work for all – not too hilly with link options if needed. So a good steady route, 50 miles and no serious climbing, everyone welcome. Cafe stop for those that want one at Ruthin, leaving Saints at 9.30am and a Rhuddlan pick up about 9.45am – weather looking ok, but cool – see you all on Sunday.” — Mark Allen (Club Secretary)
