Wow, that was a tough one. I can barely walk or eat today. Up until Barmouth, it was primarily Type 1 fun with a well balanced mix of terrain and fantastic descents. I made it to the SPAR in Penrhyndeudraeth by 22:30 in time for a resupply. Then it was up to the disused slate quarry for some hike-a-bike. My legs rebelled on the final scramble to the summit. It was survival mode for the final 100km.
All in all, a very fine route with some great sections I’d not ridden before… though it might be a while before I consider 300+km off road in Wales in one go again.
Thanks Stu and Dee for looking after us.
