Thought id share a few pics from my ride out last night.
It was a little sortie of the hills, route was over Hope mountain then into Minera and over the moor then down into Llangollen and finally up and over the horseshoe pass, then home from there. 39miles in total and lots of feet.

    Nice place, ridden there a bit, and raced Llandegla before it became "trendy"...

    Spent a w/end there last Oct, climbed up Moel Famau, took in the local pubs.

    Great area.

    Nice one, Moel famau is a good ride, its very steep especially if you approach it from the Ruthin side and then down into Loggerheads.

    The descent I love is from the Horseshoe pass into Ruthin on the A525, good road surface with blind sweeping bends through the trees - goes on for ages :)

    Im loving it thanks mate, still fettling with the bar setup as it came with 44" and Im going to change to a 42" bar which should fit me better, the 44's are a bit wider than my shoulders and feel kind of too wide.

    Not had any problems with the bike at all, just need to ride it as often as possible up these lovely hills :)
