We are returning to Snowdonia this May to tackle some real mountains in preparation for the 2009 Etape du Tour, once again ably led by Richard Glynne Jones.
The Saturday ride is 50 miles long, and has 3 main climbs. The ride will include Snowdonia’s version of L’Alpe d’Huez!
The Sunday ride will be 80-90 miles long, with lot of climbing. It will follow the route of the Gran Fondo Cymru Medio.
On Monday you will be free to do as you wish!
Riders should expect to be self-contained for food and drink, waterproofs etc.
Accommodation is £15.50 per night, or £16.50 for En Suite in 4 or 6 bed dormitories. Breakfasts are £5.
There is plenty of car parking, and there is a nice pub which serves good bar food adjoining. There is also a café - restaurant, and a small kitchen for cooking your own food.
People may just join us for the rides if they wish – names in advance please.
