Brian Chapman Memorial Ride – 600km Audax

  • 600 Kilometers
  • Over 6800m climbing
  • 40 hour time limit
  • Wales End to End

I set off from Chepstow along with 150 other riders at 6am on Saturday 18th May, with 600km of road in front of me. There were three mandatory control points to visit on the way up to Menai, the most northerly point on the ride and these involved cycling through some of the best scenery that Wales has to offer including a climb over the Pen-Y-Pas which is part way up Snowden, Wales’ highest mountain. I completed the 290km to Menai in 15 hours (including stops) arriving at approx, 9pm. After some food and an hours rest it was back on the bike and heading back to Dolgellau for a couple of hours sleep and then back on to Chepstow where I arrived some 35 1/2 hours after leaving. That is my second time doing this ride and it could be a while before I do it again.
