I was hoping to get out on one of the routes, unfortunately, SWMBO needs a trip to Malta that week so that's been shot down in flames. RIP Mike Hall

    Yeah, i'm down for one of the 300's. Looking forward to the lesser beaten tracks of mid Wales.

    Yep doing the 'slow' 400, although aiming to complete it in the 'fast' time limit. Sounds like a great adventure!

    In for the 600, suspect I'll get to about the 30km part, pull over to the side of the road and wonder what the censored I'm doing. Have a cry censored then censored off home.

    Looking forward to it

    Doing the fast 400, looking forward to it in a masochistic way.

    Website is almost impossible to read. Had to just highlight it all.

    Good write up though. LONG day out!

    Oh, not sure why that is, frigging technology. It was a long day, but I didn’t hear a single complaint, the true spirit of the ride was embraced by everyone, and that is refreshing to see and experience.

    Nice write up CC.

    I was on the 300A and that was plenty for me. I was almost ready to pack at Dolgellau, If i knew i had Bwlch-y-Groes to come, I probably would have!

    It took me just an hour less to complete than Brevet Cymru 400 a few weeks previously. It was THAT hard. Kudos to everyone who started, let alone finished. Great weekend.

    Looked a great event but sounded hard as a hard thing!

    It was very testing, and a great challenge for any rider, the 200 and 300km routes would have been equally challenging and a good stepping stone for those wishing to step up the distance they ride.

    15/16th June 2019...make a note for next year.
