The Cambrian 3D is about 10k short  :facepalm:

Bala - Pwllheli - Bethesda - Llanrwst - Conwy - Mold – Ruthin – Llangollen - Bala can be made to weigh in at 289.5km, which is a bit embarrassing.  However, it has always been a bit of an ugly ducking as Cambrian Series rides go, so I am going to propose a modification:

Bala - Pwllheli - Bethesda - Llanrwst - Conwy - Mold – Ruthin – Llangollen - Glyn Ceirog - Bala

Glyn Ceirog, a new Cambrian Series control is bless with a Society for the Preservation of Audax Riders (SPAR) shop, and also invites an ascent of Allt y Gwernant, which has one of the best bits of sustained 17% in the country.  That would bring the ride up to 307km with 4500m of ascent, which should help it to regain its AAA points, which it lost in a rule change around 2005.   :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Here is the proposed new route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/31902338

Cambrian 3D all approved - with a tasty 5.25AAA.  That should stop it being the ugly duckling of the 300s.

Wish I lived closer to Wales. So many great rides, and another to add to the list.

Echoing guidance from the AUK Committee and AUK Permanents Secretary

Cambrian Series Permanents are suspended until further notice, including any SR events.  However, please retain your brevet cards as they will remain valid once the country is back up and running.   I will not be validing any cards ridden during the suspension of AUK events and rides ridden during the time would not be covered by AUK insurance.

Apologies

Thank you, CET. Hope you enjoyed Mad March, sneaking in the last long(ish) hilly (wet) ride for a while.

It had hills, weather, and at the end a ferry crossing without a ferry.  And a pub finish.  Pretty much all the requirements for a great Audax ride.
