Cadair Idris weekend. 25/26th April
« on: January 09, 2015, 09:51:01 PM »
Seeing as we haven't had a weekend away for a while....   ;D

How about a trip up to Cadair Idris. Ride it on the Saturday, bunkhouse for the night and ride CyB or the Macchynlleth trails on the Sunday? Or head over to the Elan valley or something.

I'm thinking maybe late April, early May.

Discuss. (But not for too long!  :D )

Me too.

I'd like to do Climachx, never done it before!  :-[ If we're going kitted-up, what about a long weekend Fri-Sun? Can people get time off work?

I would be up for that although it might take me a fair bit longer to get up the hill than Dan Atherton!

So how about the fun bit now of actually deciding a date for this? I'm currently free for any weekend from the start of April until the 26th of May.  Maybe the bank holiday weekend of the 2nd of May would be good so we get an extra day for fun.

One other thing I was going to add was about the ride up Cadair Idris itself. It needs to be done in reasonable weather so if we book a weekend - and somewhere to stay etc - I think we need to understand that if the weather isn't suitable we will bail out of the CI ride and go elsewhere.

So the aim is to ride CI but there's a good chance that we may not!

2nd May sounds good, Tris, but I need to run it past the boss. Also going up on bank hol weekend may make accomodation difficlt to find?

I can't do the 2nd May weekend. How about the weekend before - 25/26th April?
