North Wales Weekend MTB / Road trip 17th &18 May 2014

The CCCC North Wales Trip is just over a week away, there are still plenty of places available.

I will be driving up on Friday evening, leaving Cheltenham at about 7:00 PM. I have space for 3 more riders & Bikes in my land rover. Give me a shout if you need a lift.

Accomodation is booked at the North London Mountaineering Club barn for the Nights of Friday 16th  & Saturday 17th May 2014.

The barn provides an ideal base for riding the Marin trail, which can be accessed a couple of miles down the road.
The excellent Penmachno trail is only a ten minute car journey away, and boasts one of the best single track descents I have ever ridden.
The accommodation is very reasonably priced at only £5:00 pounds per head per night. The barn is equipped with 30 bunks in three dormitories, but should be able to comfortably accommodate 20 with storing bikes inside.
You will need to bring a sleeping bag for the alpine bunks. There is a large kitchen dining area, with plenty of cooking facilities, cups plates etc.
For those not wishing to cook, there is the excellent Bryn Glo cafe situated in the car park, about two minutes from the barn.
There are three pubs within easy walking distance of the barn, so Saturday night should be sorted.
To book your place send an email to : jim.meech@googlemail.com or contact me via the Yahoo group.
Although billed as a mountain bike trip, roadies are very welcome to come along and ride some of the great road routes round Snowdonia.
