Following the success of the Skegness 500km ride we will now attempt an even more ambitious 700km weekend this will involve two rides one on Saturday 19/6/2021(05:00am start) to Stwlan Dam 220 miles and then after sleeping in our own bed's we will then go to Barry Island 219 miles on Sunday 20/06/2021(06:00am start).
Anyone wanting to do just one of the rides will be more than welcome more details below.

Stwlan Dam (Day 1)https://ridewithgps.com/routes/31486810
48km Dawley - Shops
72km Shrewsbury - Shops
88km Butty Box Cafe*

In his introductory chapters, Warren describes the search for a hill climb in Wales that would stand alongside his two giants of England and Scotland: respectively, Great Dun Fell and Bealach na Bà. His choice, and you may disagree, is The Stwlan Dam at Blaenau Ffestiniog. Though he awards it only 8/10, he says, 'If this road were situated just north of Dorking, it would need a permanent police present to control the number of riders heading up it...'

Hey Paul

I'm new to the club but interested in this club run. Was just wondering roughly what sort of pace this would be?

Hi Andrew i would expect it to be around 16-17mph average more A run pace than B run.

Ok

I'll have to see how my fitness is to see if that's manageable for myself closer to the time. I'll let you know closer to the time.
