Since I was billy no mates this morning I decided to attempt my first willy wave round the Marin
Had to rush out of the car park to beat a mini-bus full of newbies onto the first section. Annoyingly there is still a diversion half way up the first climb, and just by the last climb, which means my route was 14.29 miles. However, I managed it in 1 hr 57 mins, including a banana stop ;D so I'm really chuffed.
Turned out the group of newbies were actually Gurkhas, so maybe the thought of being chased through Gwydyr forest by a group of knife-wielding soldiers was all the motivation I needed ;D ;D
Thought I'd better give it a go today . Full Marin ignoring diversions (sorry FCwales) , bit of a shock when I came across them working on a Saturday afternoon . Time 1.46.37, Ragley Piglet ,easier on the climbs for me this time of year .
