While I as in Aberystwyth Clive lent be a bike 12 speed Peugeot “racer” from the late '80s or early '90s marked a route on a map and told me he would meet me at a certain point where he would be running up and down the mountains. I had been forewarned so had shorts and cycling top.
Just a brilliant end to a day a 21 mile route with some real hills. The strangest thing was coping with a bike without either toe clips or “clipless” pedals. Just ordinary pedals which combined with the 42 tooth inner chain ring made the hills just a bit more challenging. The weather was everything. A few spots of rain just to remind me it was Wales but mostly warm evening sun.
Clive met me at the top of the final descent but had the decency to follow me down so I go to to ride the decent on his bike.
I tapped in the route into map my ride by hand as I foolishly did not take my GPS. It is here: http://www.mapmyride.com/ride/united-kingdom/aberystwyth/675627671205
