A Tintern Ride.

28/04/01

We met at 4.30pm on that Saturday afternoon, the weather was quite warm and sunny, so we had both turned out wearing our shorts! We rode up the parallel lane to Llewellyn’s Dingle, then took our favorite climb up Cobbler’s Plain, we hit speeds of 48mph as we sped to Trellech Grange. We quickly descended to Tintern where it turned very cold. After viewing the church, we put on our leggings and extra layers. We ascended the climb to Ceddon bog, here I started struggling, it must have been the cold or something, but I was suffering all the way. However we had a good look at Cleddon Bog as we took the very quiet Nine wells wood lane. We cycled past Trellech cross and through Llanishen, Where we noticed the pub had closed down! In Usk I took on much needed Lucazade and Refresher sweets in order that I could make the journey home! We cycled on the main road to Glascoed and then took the lane to Trostra farm and New Inn, to arrive home at 10.00pm....48miles.
