|The 40mile route (anti-clockwise)|
My third time of riding the Abersoch RNLI Sportive in support of the crew that came to my aid in 2007 following my Sailing Accident, and the toughest outing of the lot so far!
I met up briefly with friends from Nefyn, Mike and Fran beforehand but with different start waves ended up riding pretty much the whole ride on my own.
|The top of Rhiw Hill|
A very wet, cold and windy day saw only about 50 entrants which is a real shame as even in these conditions the 40 mile loop with 3,067 feet of climbing around the Llyn Peninsular is stunning!
Only got lost once at the summit of Rhiw Hill (after someone had moved the route signage!).
Managed to pick up the official route again around Porth Neigwl for the return run in to the Vaynol pub at Abersoch!A damp but never the less rewarding ride J
