Dolgellau: and finally... cycling


For our final day, we cycled through Coed y Brenin forest.
We had a picturesque lunchtime stop by the river, on rocks by a bridge which surely has a troll living under it!
Out on the far side of the forest, is wild country.
In what seems like the middle of nowhere, a little Welsh Chapel with it's tiny graveyard. An old roman road runs by it. History runs deep in these parts.
We turn onto the roman road, now a beautiful track, (with some of the original stone slabs maybe?) up and over the mountain, to drop back into the forest.
A Cuckoo sang right above our heads, such a great sound.
Back through the forest.
We picked up Littlest's bike so that he could have a go at some off road biking, much to his delight.
Back home, to the caravan for some much needed hot chocolate.
One of the most enjoyable and beautiful bike rides.
