September 2002 saw us tackle the alternative sections of Sustrans Route 8, starting at Chepstow rather than Cardiff and taking a more westerly route through mid Wales. This was a much tougher ride, very hilly with some rough off-road sections.
Day 1/2/3 – Chepstow to Hay on Wye (55 miles) then on to Aberyscir (20 miles)
Day 4 – Aberyscir to Devils Bridge (52 miles)
Day 5 – Devils Bridge to Dolgellau (55 miles)
Day 6 – Dolgellau to home (51 miles)
