Distance: 29 miles – Difficulty: 2/5 – Weather: Showery

On a blustery day, four riders made the start at the Choir Hall to cycle down to Goldcliff and the Seawall Tearooms. The rain kept off on the outward journey, but after refreshments of cake, teacakes and coffee at the cafe, the heavens opened and showers accompanied us on the return trip to Caldicot.

Distance: 20 miles – Difficulty: 1/5 – Weather: Fine with light drizzle on return

Four riders made the start at the Choir Hall, including first-timer Darren Lloyd. The route took us through Caerwent, Carrow Hill, St Brides and into Magor, initially stopping at the Golden Lion but when it became apparent that they were not serving food, we switched to the Wheatsheaf which was excellent. We were also joined for dinner by Darren’s wife, Bev Lloyd and Sue Earnshaw who had driven there to meet us.

RIDE CANCELLED HEAVY RAIN

Tuesday, 14th August 2018

Distance: 12 miles – Difficulty: 1/5 – Weather: Fine

Nice evening at the Millers Arms in Mathern, for the latest ride from the Choir Hall. Great to see Paul Vincent joining us for his first ride out, hope he enjoyed it and will come back again. Excellent value in the pub as well, meal and a pint for £10, marvellous. We shall return.

Distance: 27 miles – Difficulty: 4/5 – Weather: Hot

Tough ride today, lots of steep climbs, very hot but very picturesque. Route saw us leave the Choir Hall and head for Mount Ballan before ascending the Shirenewton drag. Dropping down by the Huntsman before the steep climb to Itton and Devauden. Loveliest part of the ride is the winding descent to the Cot, passing the trout lakes before entering Tintern. Onwards to Brockweir for photos at the quay, stopping off at the Old Railway Station for cake and refreshments before the long climb back to St Arvans. Return to Caldicot was via Chepstow and Mathern. Good day out, with great company.

Distance: 13 miles – Difficulty: 3/5 – Weather: Warm

Nice ride to the Tredegar Arms for food and refreshment. Curry, chips and cider was the order of the day, very enjoyable followed by a 30+ mph descent to Crick via the drag. Good job we only had one pint.

Distance: 15 miles – Difficulty: 3/5 – Weather: Cloudy but fine

Five riders made the start for the ride to the Boat Inn alongside the River Wye in Chepstow. The route saw us leave the Choir Hall, past the David Broome Event Centre to Crick, and onwards through the backlanes to Mounton and the challenging climb to the hospital at Chepstow. Crossing the road and going down through the town and the Castle Dell, before arriving at the Boat. Maybe because the weather was not the best tonight, cloudy but still warm, the pub was surprisingly quiet compared to other visits. Anyway, pints of cider and beer to wash down the chips, fish, burgers etc., before mounting-up and making our way home. No visit to the bottom of Chepstow on a bike is complete without taking on the School Hill climb, short but sharp, before cycling through Garden City and the woods to Bulwark. Descending down Dark Hill into Mathern before returning to Caldicot.

Distance: 18 miles – Weather: Cloudy but fine

Today’s ride saw us leave the Choir Hall and head for ‘The Cwm’, stopping for pictures at this beautiful tree-lined valley. Onwards to Magor via Llanvair Discoed and Five Lanes to stop for refreshments (cider and coffee) at the Golden Lion before heading for home. Four riders made the start, although it seems that we narrowly missed Maurice Penny by a couple of minutes which was a shame.
