Sunday 5th April to Llandegla

Posted by Eleanor:
The two groups (approx 15 riders) rode together (more or less) to Holt, where Ewart took over, to lead 6 of us (Kevan, Kevin, John Conboy, John Crystal, Howie and me) on the longer ride to Llandegla – he promised us a flat route there. Ha ha. As someone said, “never trust a sprinter”. I should have added: “especially one who lives in the area”. Anyway after a predictable initial ride to Rossett he then led us on an unpredictable and very hilly route: on a rough but quiet track alongside the main Chester to Wrexham road, then up through Llay to Gwersyllt, and on past Moss Golf Club through Brymbo (where Ewart has some land on which he’s planning to build a house). Ewart does not subscribe to my long-held theory that once you’ve gained height, you should never lose it, at least not gratuitously – his route took us up steep hills, then down them on the other side, then up some more. But I’m not complaining, honest, it was a great route and on my new birthday feather-light bike I must admit I felt really good on the hills, and managed to stay with everyone, although my triple did come into use quite a bit. Anyway we emerged after Brymbo high up on the B5102 (this is the road on which we normally climb up to Llandegla – for what it’s worth I prefer Ewart’s route).

Unfortunately at this point, tantalisingly close to the cafe, Kevan and I had to head off home – for once acknowledging our parental responsibilities, as our student children were passing through Northwich and we didn’t want to miss them. So I’m hoping that someone else will post a comment to let us know how everyone got on after we’d left them!

In the meantime, many thanks to Ewart for an excellent and challenging route.

Club runs are back in the calendar for our members and new riders who are looking to join.
