Your Way is indeed not a bad way to do it.  I may well do it Your Way again.  I enjoyed the event, and the achievement such as it was, but I didn't enjoy all the riding because of sheer fatigue.  I can't remember some of it either, there was a lot to take in.

I was there at dusk, but that day dusk seemed to last about 3 hours.

It started out drizzly at St Michaels-wivva-Bear and ended up pitch dark by Llanwrtha

SimonP - you were faster than that cos you passed me just after Llanwrtha

By the time I hit that climb, I was just finding every big hill quite amusing.  It started to drizzle as we crested the top by the antennae and was misty.

Ah yes. I think I remember now. I had lost count by then. :)

The other thing told me it would be easy!

The big problem was the descent though. Couldn't see a bloody thing with the drizzle on my specs and the fog.

I'd like to go over there in daylight

I didn't know that road existed.  I might take a ride up there one day soon :)
