Never, never, ever again. Well maybe next year. :roll:

Thanks to Pete and Matt for waiting at the top of the hills for me.

Miserable weather but great organisation. It was surreal eating lunch in the only square mile in Wales the rain did not visit.

Did we win the team prize?

WSll that was my first ever Wild Wales, and no we didnt win the trophy . I personally judge the winning of an event by enjoyment so on a personal note I won hands down.

Anyone who after finishiing can say they enjoyed it is a winner in my eyes, especially when it rains most of the day and wind more suited to autumn.

I rode with some members of the Wheelers I hadnt met before, some I hadn't rode with for many years and others I ride with often and a pleasure it was to ride with all.
But we mustnt forget John Jackson who tirelessey navigated us around the 90mile course perfectly and profesionally. many thanks John


and thanks to Toni Mion for providing me with transport for the day :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

many thanks
