A fantastic spread and cooked breakfast at the Cross Foxes in Trawsfynydd set us up nicely for the day ahead. Here we are getting ready :-
As we started.. a long and steady climb lead us above the A470 towards Coed y Brenin.
I caught Peter on a couple of times
The track linked to the fire roads in Coed y Brenin where we reached the visitor centre for cake. Mmmmm
We headed off on the Minotaur trial a blue route in Coed y Brenin.
Following a quick lunch we headed off for the first of two big hill climbs. My knee had been hurting all day which forced me to take it slower than I wanted :( there was a good view of Dolgellau on the way
Once we finally got to the top of the big climb arrived at the Cadair Idris valley. Following the cycle track we traversed the valley where we found a stark warning :-
Half way up the big climb. The rain arrived. So time to quickly put on some waterproofs.
After finally getting to the top the climb we headed down the valley. Unfortunately the weather wasn't too good for pictures. But I tried :
From the bottom of the valley we followed the river for Corris :-
Rain was as incessant as yesterday but we knew we were close to the end.. so with a good pace we headed down to Machynlleth.
Crossing the Dyfi over the footbridge marked our leaving North Wales and entering mid Wales and arrival at Machynlleth !!!
So all in all, we're all agreed that today was better than yesterday. We've showered, eaten and looking forwards to long day to Pontrhydfendigaid tomorrow :)
Here's a link to our track for today :-
