    I don't get why you all diss Rhyl so much. On our ride, it provides a lovely target as you tootle along the revetment. Admittedly the middle bit is somewhat basic, but the part out the other side where the Bike Hub is located is rather nice

    Providing you close your eyes and pedal as fast as possible in the middle bit, all is good. And I like the bit through Prestatyn golf course so you're stuck with Rhyl I'm afraid

    So basically you're saying that the best part of Rhyl is Prestatyn?

    All Nick's fault. He reserved a place there, the rest of us just checked it out, saw the reviews, nice price…

    The middle bit of Rhyl has the air of a "traditional" British seaside resort. But the bit before is nice. And the rest of the ride to Llandudno is great

    Here's what it looks like (albeit they are travelling in the opposite direction to us)

    And, from the sublime to the ridiculous...here's Timmy Mallet arriving on his bike in Llandudno (this was on my NCN5 photo search before you ask)

    ColinJ A big clot!

    The problem is the Headwind From Hell that you always lay on for the ride, so that middle bit takes 3 hours 27 minutes! :laugh:

    I think over the years, my gentle ribaldry about the weather has gotten to him. I shall therefore hand over that task to someone else. Any volunteers?

    Which reminds me, I've got that stack of books that you lent me last year. I'll bring them back on the ride.

    Dear god, no. I for one am looking forward to your in depth treatsie on the Coriolis effect. And @nickyboy's "low punched shot" of course. Far be it for me to take that away from you...

    Put me down as a "it would be rude not to" entry, not sure about setting off up the "Strava Hill" like a bat out of hell this time though.

    Not me. I'm in somewhere called the Iris Hotel.
    probably cheap and cheerless but I'll be well bladdered by bedtime.
