Trip to the seaside

I went on the 400km Brevet Cymru audax yesterday. Although it was rainy early on, it cleared up and turned into a sunny late afternoon. I’ve done this ride a couple of times before but this was the best edition so far for me. It starts from Chepstow at 6am and goes to Hay-on-Wye, Builth, Tregaron and the Welsh Newquay, on the coast near Fishguard. Then back to Chepstow via Brecon. A couple of the controls were at great cafes, the West End Cafe in Llandovery and the Marine Cafe in Newquay.

The best bit IMHO is the night section from Llandovery to a stop near Brecon. Well surfaced, empty A roads originally constructed for coaches are great fun on a bike.

I finished after 3am and so had problems with sleepiness near the end
