There were 16 riders out today for the last of the month longer clubrun to Llandovery.
Guests were Simon Smith(3?), Griff Pugh-Jones (S.U.C.C.) & Phil Walton (1).
We rode up the Swansea valley with a welcome tailwind and regrouped at Crai reservoir. Trevor & Ian W. turned back here. Onto Defynnog & Sennybridge and along the A40. Karl & Paul turned off towards the lanes and whether by accident or design, took Phil Walton & Mark K. with them. Through Trecastle, the pace picked up with Rhys, Mark N. & Phil G. sharing the work.
Cafe stop at Llandovery (40 miles) in the West End.
Back on to the A40 and a headwind all the way to Llandeilo, where a diversion took us off the main road and around the houses. Into Ffairfach and along the valley road to Ammanford (60). Left up the Amman valley up to G-C-G.(65) Along the valley road to Pontardawe(70), where the top half of the hill was being resurfaced. A few punctures on the way, but we managed to dodge the showers.
Points:- 4 = Mark W., Mark N., Phil G. & Rhys. 3 = Trevor, Jonny, Ian W., Mark K. & Paul. 2 = Lee, Nic, Karl & Jeremy. Guests = 3.
