    Mate, try this on for size. Llanbadrig to Monmouth via St Davids and somewhere near Aberthaw, incorporating all the really big climbs in between.

    Its now even harder in that as we are now going for the shorter version I have decided to include all the relevant col climbs on the way. Interestingly 3 of these are in the GFC!

    Planning on a long weekend sort of thing. 4 at present, unless I can shrink the mileage from the current 500+
