I hate to say this I think you lot are trying to kill me off so you don't have to put up with my going on at you all.
I stupidly asked, "where are we off to next week?" whilst we were at the cafe and the reply came back

TINTERN
So route will be posted later on but there it is .The great and the good have spoken

I'm up for TinTin er sorry Tintern. Can we miss out Darren's little off-road shortcut this time please ?

I think we should get Scott one of them little bike trailers to carry everyone's excess clothing, tool kits, spares and emergency cake.

I am pretty sure this is the route without the 'off road' bit.

Going back through my records I think this was the one that the old guys did on a friday.You have to make sure you dont miss the left turn up on the tp before you come down into Tintern or you might end up on Darrens ruff road.

Although I'm not going to be there the longer route that I had planned to take us on heads on the B4293 after the climb all the way to Devauden, and then out on the Devauden Road. My mistake was to take the second rather than third left. The correct turning is sign posted to The Cot and Tintern, also has a cycle route 32 blue arrow.

That should avoid my off road section.

Enjoy the ride on Sunday - I'll be on my first ride back in Cornwall

Ah good - so this is the route where we had to change cafes as the first was crowded? Preferred that second cafe anyway btw...

The short dodgy road section I thought the correct turn was just a 100m or so further up the hill? It wasn't that bad anyway, I was on my best bike and didn't cry :p

I am planning to be at Costa for Sundays ride and will happily keep you company Scott as work has recently got in the way of regular riding so i will more than likely struggle a bit.

BTW which route are we doing? think I prefer the first TBH :p seems more country roads after Trelleck and Darren's course has a weird detour in Chepstow on the way back. I could replot but not sure which is correct after Trelleck...

I was waiting till the last minute hoping that the rain would show some sign of easing off but alas no. On their own I can take rain, freezing cold and hills but all together it's not my idea of a nice way to spend a Sunday morning. I don't like to see rides abandoned due to the weather but when it's exceptionally inclement it's just no fun. Sorry you made a wasted journey Scott. See y'all next Sunday.

3 of us made it out, albeit just for a 25 miler :p Mind you the way my legs felt I don't think I'd have made it back from Tintern so just as well.
