Every year the Kingfishers go on an overnight bicycle tour. This year I was fortunate to have been invited to join them on a three day trip to Llandovery; a town north of Brecon along the River Tywi in Carmarthenshire. So on Tuesday, August 22nd, John, Brian, Graham, and I loaded our panniers, looked to the north, and headed out.
|Brian, John, & Graham|
|Coming into Brecon...|
|How ya like them cookie bars boys?|
|John being John...|
|Brian looking every bit like an elf...|
|The beautiful old iron bridge at Cilycwm...|
|Brian contemplates Graham's pontification...|
|Coming into Llandovery...|
|Finally at the hotel...|
|What can ya say?|
|After a cuppa the boys are ready to ride again!...|
|Ready, set, GO!...|
|This was my view mostly...|
|... unless I race like a madman for this kinda shot...|
|or wait for them to stop...|
|but then they are off again...|
|waiting for you know who...|
Llandovery is rich in Welsh history to put it mildly. I am so very fortunate that the boys are keen to teach me as they lead me through the countryside. I did a bit of additional research and you should do the same. Read more about Llandovery and Llywelyn ap Gruffydd. (Remember the headline?... It's simply mind-boggling to this ole' hayseed from North Carolina.)
The landscapes speak for themselves...
And so on the last evening we said our goodbyes to Llywelyn ap Gruffudd...
