Maybe it’s because they got the name right. It’s in Wales, bits of it are really wild, and there’s no doubting that with all those hills, it is very challenging.
Maybe it’s because there’s always a large turnout from my local clubs, and it’s great to ride around in a large group of cycling friends.
Maybe it’s because they thoughtfully devise a new route each year and there’s always something to surprise and delight you.
Maybe it’s because I’ve done it twice now and the weather has been fantastic each time. (I’ve just jinxed it for next year, haven’t I?)
With all that in mind, I wanted to make another little GoPro film to celebrate this marvellous event. Long may it continue. (Need a camera for your bike? check out my guide to cycling safety cameras here.)
The movie is available in HD, so hit the little settings icon and choose 720 HD (or higher if you view it full screen)
Here’s the movie.
Do let me know what you think, this one took ages!
By the way, this was filmed with a GoPro Hero2 camera but they’ve moved on a bit since then!
