Another Activity Weekend in North Wales

The fact that things have been organised so that the Colwyn Bay Ski races and the Llyn Padarn Kayak Time Trials occur on the same weekend makes it worthwhile making the 2 hour trip to North Wales for me. Not that the 2 hour trip to North Wales isn’t always worthwhile. It always is and the...
