Bydd y reid hon yng nghymer ni o'r gwersyllfa i lawr lonydd gwledig a rhai tiroedd neis i bentref Llangollen lle y byddwn yn rhoi'r gorau i rywbeth i fwyta neu yfed. Mae'n bennaf ar lonydd gwledig tawel iawn i ddechrau. Mae'r golygfeydd trwodd yn rhagorol efo coedwig, clogwyni, mynyddoedd a rhostiroedd. Ar ôl i ni adael Llangollen byddwn wedyn yn seiclo yn ôl ar hyd Bwlch yr Oernant, mae'r rhan yma yn anodd ac mae traffig ar y ffordd hon, mae 'na gaffi arall yn y top dylai unrhyw un eisiau rhoi'r gorau a chael ychydig o luniaeth eraill.
Starting from our campsite in Llangollen village, we ride down country lanes and some nice different terrain to Llandegla Forest where we will do a nice section of the downhill 'blue' trail. We then carry on back to the start point over open moorland and some excellent downhill descents. We will have the opportunity to stop for something to eat or drink at the end. The ride is mainly on bridleways with some road cycling at the start and at the end - fortunately the roads are very quiet of traffic. The views throughout are outstanding with forests, cliffs, mountains and moorland. A particular highlight of the ride is the traverse the famous horse shoe pass, ((in Welsh Bwlch yr Oernant,) "Pass of the Cold Stream")).
This Saturday event is part of a multi-activity event over the weekend. A bunch of us are camping for the weekend from Friday evening until Sunday morning. Please log in to find where we're staying.
