We rode to Mount Snowdon yesterday. It was about 40 miles. As we crossed the Llanberis Pass it started to rain. As we climbed the mountain on the steam train the rain got worse, the wind was gale force and it was like being in a cloud. We got to the summit and went into the cafe, the rain was horizontal. Braved the wind with my buddy Jim, and walked up to the very top of the mountain at just over 1000 metres. Walking back down to the cafe was like have ice thrown in your face whilst being under a cold shower
As we got back to the bikes, it was still raining and the streams that we saw on the way there were now raging torrents and water several inces deep was running down the road. What should have been an hours ride back took nearly 2 hours due the water. We still had a great time despite the weather
Got back from Wales at 6pm after leaving our hotel at 10.30am. It rained, stopped and then rained some more!!!
We did over 600 miles over the weekend, and it seemed most of it was in the wet
Had a great first adventure on the V
