This route from Donna for either later use, or for those not attending the Circle Of Hope ride this weekend. Predictably this route is metric at 140km, 2093m climbed and plotted in full on STRAVA – in accordance with our customs European accents should be adopted for the duration of the ride.

Hi, for those of you out on Sunday and not on the other rides. I have planned a route of sorts!. I’m afraid I won’t be joining though, sorry, bad planning on my part. Those who know me know that I am not the best at organizing things and such like! Happy for it to go in the bank and swap a date when I can be a bit more prepared…one hopes. Talking of hope, for those of you doing the CoH, enjoy:-)— Donna Warren

Heading out from the meeting at Saints Health and Fitness Meliden – the route heads towards Rhuddlan for a second pick up before backtracking along The Waen and up Rhuallt Hill. Then along Ffordd Babell to Pentre Halkyn. Then tacking across towards Rhydymwyn to turn and head through through Mold, out the other side to Ponbyddyn. Turning to ascend after Cefyn-y-bedd, Minera and on to Rhosllanerchrugog. Up to Penycae then back down again and on towards Trevor before the ascent of the Horseshoe Pass. Across to Llanarmon-yn-lal before heading up onto The Shelf, and descending The Shelf and heading towards the foot of the Clwyd Gate and turning for Llanbedr DC before The Waen home. Quite the adventure I think you will agree.
