Twenty-seven riders turned out on Sunday 18th August for the Wobbler’s annual “let’s see if you can fall off in the ford” Welsh Mountain Challenge, a tough run of 40 miles up and down some of the most challenging lanes and tracks crossing high moorland terrain in North Wales. The weather was kind, we used the second-man drop-off system to hopefully prevent strays and nobody broke down.
We stopped at the Ponderosa café with our motley collection of rough old mopeds so we could taunt all the Harley and shiny Japanese super-bike riders assembled there.
We came down from the high moorlands, a long, long descent which needs good brakes, to our lunch stop at the Telford Inn, alongside the fabulous Froncysyllt aquaduct at Llangollen.
From the lunch stop it was back up into the hills again, via Ted’s infamous ford, navigated by most riders with a few slips and slides.
A great day out was had by all! Hopefully see you all there again in 2020.
