This week saw the first ‘car assisted’ ride of the year – with a trip to Wales (although the assistance was limited to getting there not support during the ride)
The Famous Five (fast group) met in Usk, for a 140km round trip via Abergavenny and Hay, including The Tumble and Gospel Pass, whilst the Secret Seven (intermediate Group) opted for a shorter 95km, by starting in Abergavenny and then heading over the Tumble and over Gospel Pass
The weather was fantastic, enabling the stunning scenery to be enjoyed, although at points on the two climbs, this wasn’t foremost in many minds.
Also worth a mention of the coffee stop at The Mill in Targarth which lived up to its reviews and ratings
All in all a fantastic ride, great day and something we will look to do again (the car assist that is)
