Where I really went...
I pushed on a bit further today and cycled along the old railway track to Abergwynant and back. Legs were a bit more wobbly this time on arrival home, but still not too bad and I did ride out into a head wind and coming back did some faster 'sprints' and actually overtook four other cyclists!!!! Very slow ones, but still. :)
I was going to try to record my speed, but I got distracted by the neighbour when I arrived back and forgot to look at my watch. Next time I'll take the stop watch then all I have to do is stop it.
If I get chance, I'll do that ride again over the weekend, then next week I'll extend the distance a little further to the picnic point three-quarters of a mile further on along the trail. I used to regularly cycle to that point, a distance of 9½ miles. From there, it shouldn't be too difficult to take a whole day and reach my goal of cycling all the way to Barmouth. At least that is the plan...
