There were 12 riders out today in clear but cold conditions for the club run to Ferryside. Mike Broadbent joined the club today as a second preference. Simon Smith rode as a guest, having been out with us previously approx 6 months ago.
We set out through Brynhyfred and onto Carmarthen Road and headed off past Swansea Sound and across the Loughor Bridge. A few guys (me not included) pushed off for the bridge sign but as its winter…
After regrouping we pushed on past Machynys golf club where we were passed by 4 riders (one of which was in a PT wheelers gilet) who must have been chasing us for a while. As soon as they passed us, they eased off and we kept them pegged until we joined the bike path.
Along the bike path and towards Ashburnham golf club. We joined the pembrey coast road and along into Kidwelly. 4 riders turned back here intent on getting home to watch the egg chasers.
The rest of us pushed on along the coast path which was surprisingly dry and into a warm cosy cafe. John had his usual plate of chips which looked pretty good.
Back onto the road and straight up the steep hill out of Ferryside. Down into Kidwelly where John dropped like a stone down the hill. Back along the coast road and onto the oastal path before retracing our steps towards Loughor Bridge. Simon said the Marsh road was closed so we broke up at the bridge and thereafter in Gorseinon. The rest of us passed through Gorseinon and up to Penllegaer before heading for home.
