Welsh Ride Thing Preparations

With the Welsh Ride Thing (WRT) around the corner I have had to think seriously about the amount of riding I’m doing and what will be achievable over the nearly 3 full days. I have mapped around 12 of the way-points and initially covering a distance of approximately 110km with nearly 3000m of climbing.

If I can get there Sunday night I will be over the moon!
