Where will you be on the 29th March 2019?
I know where I'll be. Here, in the back bar of the West Arms, a historic Welsh inn at the foot of the Berwyn mountains. I'll be sinking a few pints and watching @rsfarchive
give a lantern slide show.
Brexit, what Brexit?
The next day we'll ride the famous track up the Nant Rhyd Wilym to the Rough Stuff Fellowship memorial to 'Wayfarer' at the pass, and carry on 'over the top' down to the Dee valley. This will be 100 years to the day that Wayfarer rode it in the snow. His account of the adventure published in Cycling magazine in May 1919 inspired a generation to seek out the wild places of Britain, by bike and on foot.
After the ride there's a Centenary dinner at the West Arms.
All are welcome. All the events are free, except the Centenary dinner which is £25 for three courses. Book that dinner directly by calling the West Arms on 01691 600665. They also have rooms available.
