Report and Results - 9 August 2009
A pleasant summer's day in the Welsh hills with a
dry, bright morning and a warm, sunny afternoon to finish.
Punctuated by a light drizzle around mid-distance.
All riders reported an enjoyable day out.
There were just two non-finishers,
both for reasons unrelated to the event.
It was a shock to find that Corwen now charge £3.50
to park for the day.
Although nicely resurfaced,
with some picnic benches around the edge,
that's too much.
It is unlikely I will base another event here.
Riders discovered that two different distance measurement sytems
were in use:
from riding the route from the start to Bala
and from Bala to the finish;
and Graham Mills's original route sheet for Bala-Vyrnwy-Bala.
I had ridden that section in July and suspected that it was some 3km
longer than stated.
But I had forgotten my pen and didn't update it. Sorry.
Total ride distance was probably near 132km.
Despite concerns about traffic and congestion during the school
the roads were reasonably quiet and any delays at controls short.
The Eisteddfod did cause the anticipated snarl-up in Bala but
it was limited to the centre and soon cleared the other side.
This event will not be run in 2010.
