There were 14 riders out today for today’s clubrun to Ystradgynlais.
Guests were Lee (4/4), Matthew Rees (ex O.V.W.C.C.) and Adam & Gethin (S.U.C.C.).
We rode up to Morriston Hospital, where Phil G. turned off and Rhys had a mechanical (disintegrating jockey wheel). Andy turned off soon after. Onto the club hill climb road to Penllercastell, where Jonny fixed a slow puncture. Along the hilltop road and down into Rhyd-y-fro and across the main road. Rhys turned off here. Up and over a very wet Gwrhyd. Onto Cwmllynfell, as the Rhiwfawr bridge has been washed away, down through the rain and the valley road to the cafe stop at Co-op in Ystradgynlais. Jeremy & Jonny turned off here.
A brief 5 minute stop due to the heavy rain and cold conditions.
When leaving the Co-op, we bumped into Gerald who was taking South Wales’s most walked dog for…a walk. After a brief chat, Gerald waved his staff and the rain stopped! We rode up the Steps and along Crynant common. Into Crynant, where the heavy rain started again, it was a grim ride into Neath and home.
Points:- 4 = Mark W., John & Paul. 3 = Tony, Jonny, Andy & Phil G. 2 = Jeremy D., Wyn & Rhys. Guests = 4.
