    Just seen the weather forecast, looks like it'll be a cracking day for a
    good long ride.

    Plans as per the (aborted) bank holiday run:

    Nice. I do hope you know that the road from Beulah to Tregaron is a rather
    hilly / windy single track though. Oh, and you'll be going down the hairpins
    at Devil's Staircase.

    I rode it a couple of weeks ago for the RBR, it was fun, but I didn't try to
    rush it.

    So, if we're going South East from Beulah, then we're doing Devil's
    Staircase the wrong way? - if so, I'll modify the plans and do it the
    other way round.

    They are easier going west to east i.e. downhill. If you have to stop
    for traffic then it's a much simpler job to get going again.

    I really enjoy the steep bits. I did the route with a few mates last
    month. They liked it too. Even the city dweller on his Sprint ST.

    If you want to avoid the steepest bits take the Llyn Brianne turning
    about 6 miles east of Tregaron. Follow the road around the lake and end
    up in Llandovery.

    I can't make this ride as I have guests staying over on Saturday. Have a
    good ride.

    If you do that, you have to stop at the sluice carpark
    (http://tinyurl.com/27ml9 streetmap link) & have the customary
    conversation about how far you'd get if you rode flat-out up the
    concrete ramp on a CR500...

    Apologies, managed to say that the wrong way round, the map shows (assuming
    that you go up the points) that you'll be going east (Tregaron to Beulah),
    that means down the hairpins, I did it heading west (Beulah to Tregaron), up
    the hairpins, and had no trouble. Only met 2 cars on the entire road & I
    wasn't going quick.

    Have fun, Tim S
