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
Eddington Numbers 125 (imperial), 170 (metric) 520 (furlongs)  112 (nautical miles)
