Caught the train out to Paignton with T. Had a lovely time exploring, rounded off with chips on the seafront!

Shaugh Prior

•Monday 12 May 2008 • Leave a Comment

Just had a lovely walk up the Plym valley, which included a section of a couple of miles which I had never been on. Bird of the day? A cormorant, which I’m sure I’ve never seen this far inland before – it was happliy diving for fish in the river. Sat at SX 5393ยน63922, which is above Shaugh Prior and has a view down over the woods and PLymouth out over The Sound. I’ve got a lovely spot – flat ground, shelter and plenty of fuel. Only issue may be the guy that was paying a bit too much attention and may well know the landowner. There again, I am just about on the open moor, and legality! That’s my cuppa ready. O&O for now.

just a test

Trundled around –

” White’s Trail

Distance: 24km

Climb: 400m

Time: 1.5 – 3 hours

The trail starts at Glyncorrwg Mountain Bike Centre.

Very technical progressive riding trail with drops, step downs and long singletrack climbs.

A 6km sheep track climb gives fantastic views of Afan Forest Park, extreme exposure on tight singletrack means ultimate thrills and long, demanding descents with rocky steps to negotiate, all leading to one outrageous trail. If this was a slalom run it would be graded black.”

It felt great to be back in the saddle after 18 months. I was a bit wobbly and tentative for the first few hundred metres, but soon warmed to it. I was out with Ric and Sue, who was feeling a bit off colour. Consequently I spend a major proportion of the time sat enjoying the views whilst waiting. Suprisingly I didn’t find the initial climb too bad, counter to most of the comments I heard at the top.

My only real problem was that I lost my front brake near the begining of the main descent, which took the edge off my speed a little!

Big grins all round!

Must go cycling more often.
