Well the sun shone for the recce and it shone in places for the Sportive on saturday too. When it wasn't shining... Well, this is Wales. So I set off in drizzle on the day, with Gareth from Longleat who I met on the line and tagged along with right through the ride. It was his first sportive, and he was a little apprehensive, but we soon settled into a nice rhythm along the valley to Abergwesyn.
