KSunday 18th March
It was a tough decision to make when Danny and I woke up to quite a few inches of snow. It’s not the snow itself we were worried about but ice and the worsening forecast. When I looked on the local police twitter feed and saw that a 4×4 had come off one of the roads on the way to Swansea the decision was made, I didn’t want to risk it. It’s such a shame as being a Sunday I was supposed to have people riding with me that would be unable to during the week!
Luckily we were being hosted by a lovely lady, Jane whom I found on Warm Showers, who allowed us to stay and extra night. Jane even let us borrow a laptop to help with planning. Danny and I spent the day finding accommodation for my next few weeks and looking at the route files. So although I wasn’t happy losing another day and not being able to cycle this was extremely helpful as it is hard to organise in the evenings when I am tired.
When we attempted to walk to the pub for dinner in the evening on the roads that had turned into ice rinks we knew we had made the right decision.
