Snowdon.
#1
Ok so having walked up to the top of Snowdon yesterday and seen Nigel, Jon and Andy make it up with their bikes I am determined to do it myself.

I felt ill Monday morning when I woke up and bottled out of the ride. I was gutted that I did, the elation on thier faces and the support that they got from walkers was amazing. I NEED to do it.

So i'm going to. On my own if I have too.

My plan is to drive up on a Saturday afternoon and stay over in a cheap, hostel, bunkhouse or B&B then get up early Sunday, ride and come home. and I want to do this before the Mega.

Anyone else want to do it with me?

Date and time can be agreed between us all.

Firstly - You shouldnt do it on your own, too dangerous IMHO.

I'll come for support, but I dont think its for me, so will offer snack-based support etc and let the train take the strain.

Perhaps ride Lllandegla before home or something.....  ;D

Having seen the number of people on the mountain yesterday, a Monday, I think on my own will be fine. There must be an information point somewhere that I can register the fact i'm going up?

Could possibly tie it up with something else but you know how knackering that will be!? Maybe as a warm up the day before?

You'll be going during the summer, so you need to be up and back before 10am I think Nigel said.

So you could be lying there for a few hours before anyone may find you.

At least if someone was with you, or at least in the area for support - you'll have a bit of backup.

I think camping as a near as would be the best bet - I noticed plenty if bunkhouses on that road to it too.

Infact, there was a hotel just opposite that station I believe.
