Second winter start of 9:30. Last weeks team joined by John .W.
JW immediately used his local knowledge of three crosses to suggest a route change. This is not the
day to go up the Wern and past the Xmas tree farm – sounded like a plan. The hopes of an easier
route of the North Gower road were quickly dashed as an alternative path past Dunvant Square and
up through the estate was the option of choice.
Although that meant ta climb, the road over Welshmoor is always worth the effort, traffic free, clean
and dry which was a bonus.
Back on track through Llannon to Parkmill for coffee, Simon carrying on as stopping to get warm and
going back out in the cold is not for him. Back up the hill through bishopston and across Clyne and
down to the seafront meant a few extra km ridden and a few extra metres climbed, but still home at
The shorter route and late start is a lock in for the winter so next week will be a repeat.
