An Easter Sunday ride

Posted by Picasa
A beautiful sunny but cold day.  This is a view from just outside Tonyrefail, I thought the white cross, made of stones, on the hillside was a relevant picture for today.

Mechanical busker

The first time I've seen this.  The little guy puts a CD on and dances to the music and the operator sits inside.  Not sure how it works but it drew the crowds.

The Lewis Arms on a sunny Thursday

Posted by Picasa
A favourite meeting place, The Lewis in Tongwynlais, on a cold but sunny Thursday.  There was still ice in some of the lanes where the sun hadn't reached but the views as always, were good.

I think I may use the Lewis picture as a header?

The Devils Staircase ride

Posted by Picasa
These are some views on the way to the staircase from Abergwesyn .  Its reputably one of the hardest cycle climbs in Wales.
The road itself is probably an old drovers road used to drive cattle from West Wales into England.

The You Tube clip below is by Robert Goldsmith, it shows a group of riders going up the hill and gives a good idea as to how steep it is.
