Brecon Beacons beckon

The first 30 km from Shrewsbury are a bit hellish as I get caught in what feels like morning rush hour on route A49 on my way to the Brecon Beacons National Park in Wales. Once I turn off the A49, I am back on country lanes all the way to Talgarth at the foothills of the mountains.

As I contemplate the final 100 km ahead of me, including getting up and over the Brecon Beacons, here are some images of today’s ride.

    your Internet traffic is routed through that server. By ranking your website
    on the very first page of search engine results, you are tapping into a huge number of people looking
    for what exactly you offer.

  2. Hello there, You’ve done a great job. I will certainly digg it
    and personally suggest to my friends. I am sure they’ll be benefited from this web site.

  3. David, my heartfelt condolences for the death of your father. It was inspring to read about his manner, his generosity, his modesty, his kindness: something for all of us to aspire to! The photos and videos of your journey through Scotland, England and Wales are stunning and reinforce what a great decision it was to continue your travels on the other side of the Atlantic. Congratulations on an amazing success! P.S. — I salute your Frostian resolution to take the #2 roads at the beginning and end of your UK trek…the roads less traveled by…to embrace that ethic…it makes all the difference. Looking forward to welcoming you back to Canada. Richard Phillips

  4. Hi David: Congrats on your brilliant progress! What a grand journey you’ve experienced. I applaud your success and wish you a glorious ‘home stretch’ of riding. We will have lots of good road stories to share upon your return!
    Best Regards,
    Janice
