We went on a joint ride with Dyffryn Conwy on a day of contrasts with blue skies and sun overhead but sheets of ice beneath our tyres. A large group set off rather gingerly after witnessing numerous falls in the car park.
As the first red descent and north shore were all covered in ice it was decided to miss the black options this time round and continue along the red self- preservation being the order of the day.
The teenagers (as usual) managing all the final steep climbs much to the annoyance of those they passed who were reduced to pushing. The ride ended with everyone enjoying the swoopy drops just before the visitor centre and all hoping not to slide out on the ice. Then back for those famous bacon baps and warm drinks.
