Couldn't agree more, thanks for all your hard work.

Tough, tough weekend! Thanks to everyone I rode with, especially Rich Munro on domestique duties & Kev Underhill once again. Chapeau to Carol for an amazing first Llanberis, you can be chuffed with that.

This weekend was most certainly band of brothers!

Wow that was amazing, and one of the toughest things I've done. Many thanks to Graham and Ann for everything...and all the other drivers and support crew for being so supportive...and to everyone who helped to keep my spirits up, and to everyone I rode with, it was just incredible how everyone looked out for everyone else. For example, Carol and I were so chuffed to see you'd waited for us at Betws y Coed, that was so generous spirited of you (Woody, Richard M, Ady and Steve). Biggest thanks of course to my super-domestique, I would have struggled without you Kev! Now back, I've had a bath and a sleep, I feel really great about the weekend, and looking forward to a curry...

Tremendous weekend Graham and Anne thanks for all your hard work and support, it really is appreciated.
Thanks also to all in the group I rode back with for looking out for me, could never have made it without your encouragement and support. I hope It wasn't too much of a nuisance having to wait for me at the top of every hill!
I must now be the holder of the 'slowest Llanberis run ever' title, but I'm hoping to improve for next year, bring it on!!

I will also second all comments from above!!! You all played apart in making my first Llanberis ride so good! I would like to thank Eleanor for sharing her super domestique as I couldn't have done it without them. A big thanks also goes to Rich Munro and Woody for towing me up the Sportsman. Graham and Ann are absolute superstars!! That is one of the toughest things I have ever done. Thank you all ๐Ÿ˜€

I agree with all that too! And especially thanks to Graham and Ann for organising it all so well and driving the vans. Turned out much better today than I expected, but still the toughest Llanberis/Plas Menai I've done ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

A great weekend which could have been ruined by the selfish and stupid actions of one (non Weaver Valley) rider. A number of us witnessed this incident and I'll bring up at the next committee meeting, but don't want to discuss it any further on this public forum.

Best Llanberis yet Graham as it was warm rain for a change. ๐Ÿ˜€ Many thanks especially to Graham and Ann, but also to "Ewart Van Hire", Mrs Fearon who was never short of company in the car and also to Karen Boyle and Elaine for their support en route.

P.S. The catering was great in Ruthin, especially the soup.

Great blog from Ady on https://www.weavervalleycc.org.uk/blog-2/
with some nice photos...great to see one photo of two juniors, James and Jacob, riding so strongly with Kris and Carl in the lead group over the Sportsman...fabulous to have such young talent in the club.
