I’ve been volunteered to lead a route this week and here is my proposal.
There is some stunning scenery along this route, and some hefty bits of climbing too. Bring a banana, or something.
Update: Had a great day out on the bike. Started out with 5 of us but 1 dropped off early so four continued.
Here’s a little movie I put together from a few clips I took along the route.
I’m experimenting with this widget below from ridewithGPS.com, which seems like a great site for creating routes. A bit like MapMyRide but without the annoying ads.
To download the route as a GPX or TCX file, click the “View full route” link, then on the right hand side, choose the “Export” tab and choose a flavour.
The route could be extended by dropping down to Cyffylliog and Bontuchel, then back through Ruthin and up to Llandyrnog etc. This would take the total to roughly 50 miles.
