Cycle Ride to Capel Curig 1st/2nd September 2018. This is a Hut weekend but those that want to can cycle out on the Saturday and back on the Sunday We need someone who is staying at the chapel on the Saturday night to “volunteer” to take out overnight stuff for the riders. If you want to go, please email me at gmcharris@tiscali.co.uk The route will be the same as previous rides to the hut.: Meet at Net's Cafe on Burton Marshes at 9.30 Saturday morning for a 10am departure. Ride to Capel Curig via Northop, Halkyns, Trefnant (Lunch stop) Llansannen, Llangernyw, Llanwrst(Teabreak atTu Hwnt I'r Bont,), Betws-y-coed. Bring packed lunch or eat at pub stop(Trefnant Inn, Trefnant) or chip shop in Trefnant. Approx distance 55 miles and hilly. The distances are from the Net's cafe. Both days the biggest hills are in the first hour. The pace is steady with plenty of breaks, we have plenty of time. If, near the time, the weather is looking too bad(very wet) then we can move the ride to another hut weekend. Overnight stop at the Chapel. Evening meal, eat at the Tyn y Coed. I will need to book it so let me know if you are eating there. Breakfast, keep it simple or go to the Bryn Glo. Return journey via Denbigh moors and Denbigh (hilly again!) about 60 miles. There is an amazing down hill section from Llyn Brenig to Denbigh, known as "The Road to Hell" if you do it the other direction so it's heavenly the way we do it. Lunch stop at Morrisons in Denbigh.. You will need: Sleeping bag, washkit, towel, Change of clothes for pub. Breakfast food (non perishable), snacks. One small bag per person.
