The following photos chronicle my second cycle touring
trip expedition ever! this time I went on a fully loaded cycle touring with all four panniers on the bike and the destination was following the National Cycle Route 4 (also known as the Celtic Route) from the very tip of South Wales, Fishguard, along and down the Pembrokeshire Coastline and then aiming to get across to Cardiff – spanning some 250 miles to cover all in ten days!
After some seriously cycling challenges – hills, hills & even more hills!!! (check the hill gradient info charts for each days ride in the photo galleries!) and setting up the tent, packing up the tent everyday day at a different campsite, I finally made it to my goal Cardiff Central to catch the train back. It was a real adventure and one that I will remember for a long time! 🙂
