    Damn! If only I hadn't already got a place on the Velothon Wales. Both events take place on the same date and even someone as awesome as me ain't going to finish both rides in one day.

    I could do the first 40kms and that would be it for me so I will skip this year.

    Forget your velothon ticket go to France. As much as I love my native Wales, it can't compare to cycling in France. ^_^

    Push the boat out and pop off for a whole week in the Pyrenees or Alps. Take it all in at your leisure....have some great food, wine, enjoy the scenery... There are loads of tour companies to choose from. I’ve ridden with Marmot Tours a couple of times and can heartily recommend them.

    You'll miss the Welsh rain if you go to the Alps.

    Last year the velothon was on one of the few nice summer days we had. We Welsh might get a lot of rain but we can command the weather and it will obey us^_^

    Do the étape Skolly, if you can. Looks like a great route and it's a great area.

    Agreed. The Velothon is a nice day out but it will keep for another year.

    I can't talk personally. You'll have to talk to my sheep.
