Club Runs / Pacers 23 June
« Last post by RobC on June 19, 2024, 11:48:48 AM »
Trip over Black Mountain. Dragon ride is same day but I think we are travelling a different direction and at very different times.

It's a bit middle of nowhere halfway through so I'm proposing 2 relatively brief coffee and cake stops at Craig-y-Nos Country Park, and Coaltown coffee in Ammanford.

It's also fairly long so I think an 8am start is reasonable, but will be democratic about it.

As no one else has done a write up here goes......Out on a beautiful and sunny  Sunday, Richard L, Richard B (Part), Mark R, Tammy, Ben N, Mark J, Carl W, Vaughan R and Nige so a mixed group ride. Richard B announced he had to be home early so he followed us to Stormy then did a solo ride. The rest of us went on the set route of Aberdare clockwise.  Dropping drown from llaleston just before Elprados Carl decided to check out his eject function on his garmin and it bounced along the road. I pointed this out and he went back and retrieved the garmin projectile. Bit of a head wind out to start and again after the cake stop. Even with the headwind the pacers in the group made sure the pace was spirited. I did hear a shout of I thought Rob was on a rest day!!!. Good speed maintained over harbour way then at the turn to Baglan Bay Ben forced a change of route for some of the group when he forgot to turn left and went straight on. We regrouped and then carried on without incident until we came to Neath town center. On the layby on our left a grey VW started to pull out slowly and the shout went out to warn everyone and the car stopped moving, but then started to come out on us again and as we past we looked on in horror as there was no one in the car. The car stopped as it came to rest against the kerb and we all passed by safely. It all happened so quick but we all had the did you see that conversation as no one could quite believe it. We carried on up Neath bank and Ben shot off trying for a PB and did so by some 30 seconds. We regrouped at the top and then headed down towards Aberdare but as we had pacers in the group it would not be a club ride without some gravel/bike path riding from Herwain back into Aberdare courtesy of Mark R. A busy cake stop at Bradleys when it did get slightly over cast but cleared up before we left. The usual its all down hill from here call went out but the headwind kept the speed down a little. All back home safely in time to enjoy some sun in the garden.

There were just the six of us out on Sunday with a late show from Rahul depriving us of Rob’s company. Me Rich L Mark R Paul R and Martin set out from Brackla picking up Tim in Laleston. Good group ride out into a bit of a headwind. Mark left us at Taibach leaving the rest of us to do the climb to Cimla and the loop to Resolven and on to the coffee stop in Costa in Neath. Brisk ride home then with Martin to the fore. See you all again this Sunday.

Rahul, Graham and I enjoyed possibly the best weather of the year so far with a ride round the coast and then up to Cowbridge for coffee. A few more hills than I imagined there might be but we all stayed together and hopefully see everyone back next week.

Would anyone like to lead the group on June 9?
