Aberystwyth, 'twas warm and sunny.

Was going to put a video of the river crossing at Barmouth but my camera overwote those files on the journey home.

Looks nice. I'm hoping to get to Criccieth (via Betws-y-Coed) one day this weekend if the weather holds. That stretch from Betwys down through Blaenau to Porthmadog is probably my favourite ride.

Few more pictures of our ride, very similar to the ones you've already posted Grant. Shame about the video!

Recently restored old masonry arch known as y Bwa, spanning the original road, built by Thomas Johnes of Hafod in 1810 to mark the Golden Jubilee of George III.
The SV650 in the picture is nearly as old as the arch!

Had a cracking run out to Bala this morning, and back home via Ruthin. it was surprisingly quiet on the roads. What was even more surprising was the complete lack of police, I assumed it'd be lifting with camera vans with it being a sunny day.

I thought I was keen setting off at 7:30am, but the prize for keenness has to go to the group doing wild swimming in Llyn Tegid when I got there. Now, I love swimming, and the lake was like a millpond today, but there's no way on earth you'd get me to swim in it, it must be f*cking FREEZING ...

I was out early too
250 miles and back in time for the footy. Bala/Snowdon area.
Tal-y-llyn in the distance.

Nice pic, hope you had at least one hand on the bars while you were taking it

I'll have to head down that way at some point and explore the roads there.

That's a cracking piece of road, Cross Foxes to Tal-y-Llyn, and all the way down the side to Bryncrug.

Only went as far as machynlleth then back up't hill again. Speed camera setting up at Cross Foxes when I got back to the top.
I'll be doing the early run again so much more enjoyable without the traffic.

Exactly - I feel the same. On my runs to Wales (setting off about 7:30 / 7:45am) there's hardly anyone else on the road. Heading back home at 11am ish, it's garden-centre-tastic
