The Saturday ride was 18.98m (1:21:49), and the Sunday ride was 25.81m (1:47:47). The A4135 into Dursely was closed for resurfacing, so I cycled part of the way along that (although it was still a bit busy).

By the time I reached Cherington the roads were dry.

Distance: 37.68 miles
Time: 3:39:00 23-Jul-2004 (10.32 mph)
Notes: The pedestrian ferry from Rock to Padstow cost £3. I got a puncture near St Tudy, and broke my pump fixing it, so I rode around 10 miles in the middle with a semi-flat tyre. Once I got to Padstow a cycle hire shop at the start of the Camel Trail was able to fully inflate my rear tyre for me.

Time: 1:22:29 20-Jul-2004 (13.42 mph)

Distance: 36.51 miles
Time: 2:53:11 16-Mar-2003 (12.65 mph)
Notes: The bridge at SO267203 was closed to traffic as it's unsafe (although it didn't collapse when I crossed it), it would probably be better to use the road North of the river. The B4558 was also closed to traffic between Dardy and Glenusk Park (due to a burst water main) - I used the canal towpath above the road to bypass the closed section of road.
Combined with the ride this morning this makes a total of 46.08 miles (in 3:38:17), it also creates a continuous ride from Hay Bluff to Brecon.

Area: Brecon (LR: 160)

Distance: 29.82m
Time: 2:36:27 15-Mar-2003 (11.44 mph)
Notes: The Elan Valley Trail from Rhayader to Craig Goch Dam is an excellent route.
I rode about a mile along the byway alongside the Claerwen Reservior, and it seemed like it might be ridable through to Ffair-Rhos.
This was the same day as the Rhayader Round the Lakes Race running event, so between Craig Goch and Penrhiw-wen the road was full of runners.

Distance: ~38 miles
Time: 3:09:31 01-Mar-2003 (12.03 mph)
Notes: The track from Turf to Exwell Barton has padlocked gates on it. I walked my bike along the (very muddy) path to Powderham. The track from Exminster back to the canal towpath was also flooded in the marshes. My cycle computer said this ride was 42.46 miles but I think it was overreading - especially as it recorded my maximum speed as 982.3mph.

Distance: ~51 miles
Time: 06-Mar-1993
Notes: Looked like a nice day to go bouldering, or for a bike ride, but I couldn't decide which. So I cycled to Carter Lake Reservoir and did some bouldering (although it took me 2 hours and 30 miles to get there, so I only did a bit of bouldering). I had managed to leave my water behind, so I bought (and consumed) a large bottle of mineral water in Loveland, and then cycled back to Fort Collins (and into the wind). Arrived back feeling absolutely knackered.
