'Grid to Grid'

T
he concept was simple, the execution was tough but all club members and guests gave 100%. It consisted of a steady group ride up through Brynamman onto the foot of the Black Mountain. At the cattlegrid Brynamman side we set off as individuals as a staggered start heading up to the summit. The goal was to encourage members to push their own limits whilst understanding pacing during climbing. The focus was on their own effort and not get influenced by the performance of others. All members managed their own levels of effort with great skill. After summiting, members rode easy down to the cattlegrid Llandovery side for a group photo. The respite was short lived and we made our return leg with the same strategy and level of effort summiting for a 2nd time and steady ride back down to Brynamman where we re-grouped and rode home steady. Outstanding performances were seen by all. The challenge attracted two local celebrities - Shane Williams and Ryan Jones who joined the group and got stuck in. Safe to say they both thoroughly enjoyed the session and took the time to thank the club officially via social media.
