    I’m definitely up for the triple Bwlch – would be a great day. Anybody doing the Dambuster, or the Aber ride at the end of the month? The Aber Cawr is a fantastic and pretty tough ride.

    I have just entered the Gran Fondo Double Devil. Goes up Devils staircase and Devils elbow. 121 miles 12,227ft climbing. Should be fun!!
    Starts from Builth Wells Sunday 29th May. Anyone else riding this one?

    Me & Mike entered that a couple of years ago. Weather was so bad we down graded to 72 miles just devil’s staircase. In fact we both bought cycling jerseys of event so need to do event to justify wearing them.

    Julian – I have managed to enter. Maybe you’ve been black balled? The organiser’s contact details is on the web site. Maybe its worth calling him?

    Thanks Colin. I’ve checked and it’s open again. They must have had a problem with their website earlier. I’m not black balled by the way, although there were a few bumpy roads on the Carten! Still debating whether to enter the Dambuster, as I’ve done an event every weekend for the last 3 weeks, with the Velothon to come in a couple of weeks.
