After my previous poor ride I had second thoughts on our next ride . However I managed to drag myself out to meet Nick in Croes Llanfair at 7.30pm. I was feeling all right as we cycled to Llanellen, here we hit the lane that goes over the Monmouth and Brecon canal, this then takes a severe vertical route up the mountain toward the Blorenge. The going was good and this quiet lane was nearly devoid of all cars. We had a good ascent to the top, the weather was overcast but thankfully the rain held off. After admiring the view we had a good sprint home via Blaenafon, Pontypool and New Inn...30 miles.
