After being out and about on the bike last weekend I spotted a track about 3 miles away on a hillside and thought “I’ve gotta give that a try”.
So 7 days later I headed out to southern Snowdonia in Wales for a bit of exploration. I also made the film using my phone as my usual camera had died last summer after falling from a fence post!
The weather was spot on, around 15 degrees celsius with little wind. The lambs were out, and the cuckoo was singing away in the valley, you could say it was a perfect spring day in Wales.
The track was great, a hard double track that looked to be used by the farmer on a regular basis, it was also used by some hill walkers too. The track steadily climbed up the hillside and the views of the mountains of Snowdonia were just over my shoulder. As I climbed, I passed some ruined buildings from farming days that have long expired.
I love seeing these old buildings when out and about, it makes you think how hard their lives were as compared to the modern-day.
As I thought I had done a fair bit of cycling in Snowdonia, there seems to be a lot more to explore, and what better way to do it than being on a fat bike!
