Just a few bit's to show Gatesy what he missed by jibbing last Sat lol!

Meet Graham, Paul, Steve and Wolfy in a foggy Beirut   Brynmawr and wasn't sure why there - until I twigged it was the highest point of the valleys and were catching a train back Embarassed

After the usual discussion on which wheel size was best and who looked the biggest twat with a lump of polystyrene on our heads (Steve won both Very Happy )we trundled off into the shit weather



Then a 1,000 feet gentle downhill and a tea and teacakes stop later rolled into lovely Newport
Oddly everyone seemed to keep a vice like grip on their bikes, not even trusting bike locks - I wonder why.......??







We found out how to make this grumpy bugger smile though  Very Happy
Let him think he'd lost his wallet when he left it on a table, then give it back seconds before he made some emergency phone calls



Get's everywhere he does!



Just be grateful we'd asked Paul to censor his Lycra pants with a coffee cup lid  affraid
See Steve's back to Mr Grumpy now  Very Happy



When we realised some of the irrational behaviour from our leader was due to a lack of tea and bacon (or any other pig based products  Very Happy ) we found this spot to help him recover from being out voted on a McDonalds visit, all was well again



34 (yes 34!!) miles after starting the keen/fit amongst us then rode back to the vans, while the less keen and fit got on a train and spent the best £2.20 ever getting back

Safe to say another cracking and funny day was had by all  cheers  cheers

Never ridden it, but it is a nice place (miles from brown trousers tho) think the north end Brecon is just tarmac/canal & forest roads at worse.
