There were 14 riders out yesterday for the clubrun to Kidwelly. Guests were James Phillips(Bristol), Nic Cleave(3), Gethin(S.U.C.C.) & Tom Withers (S.U.Staff).
We rode through Brynhyfryd, Fforestfach and Garngoch before the bypass road to Loughor bridge. Along the coastal road until Llanelli into a stiff headwind, we doubled back to join the B road through Furnace and up Trimsaran hill. Rhys defied his voodoo and reached Pen y Mynydd and Pembrey mountain unscathed. We regrouped at the top, Phil turned back here and we managed to lose Bob somewhere on the mountain. Down into Trimsaran, where several riders managed to trigger the speed camera at the bottom of the hill. Through the village and along the lanes to the main road, where Karl turned back.
Into Kidwelly and a stop at the Gatehouse cafe.
Back on the coastal road and benefitting from a tailwind, we reached Pembrey in no time and turned onto the bike path to Llanelli. Retracing our tracks we took the coastal road back to Loughor, where the group divided. As Marsh road is closed for ‘engineering’ works, we took the higher road and dropped down to the bridge and into Gowerton.
