Walking in the Rain in Snowdonia

Walking in the rain in Snowdonia is one thing, but the conditions yesterday were ridiculous! It was my birthday on Friday so rather than just go out for drinks or a meal, or as we usually do just stay at home and do nothing, I came up with the idea of getting a few friends together...

Rain

It’s raining!! Proper rain as well. It seems as though it’s been ages since it last rained. According to the historic data on the Borth weather station it was actually on 2 weeks ago, but I guess 2 weeks in Wales without rain is a big thing. It’s perfect timing though. I used the last...

Ynyslas Floods

My parents are here visiting for the weekend so yesterday after our ride at Nant yr Arian I jumped on the Turbo Trainer for an hour of 14 Ramps ranging from 120% to 150% of FTP whilst they went for a walk in the dunes. Here’s what I did: In the meantime Morgan ‘Ninny’ and Grandad...

There were coast guards, the RNLI, ambulances, Fire Brigade...

Mist and Murk

The record breaking low temperatures and snowfall of December have gone and in its place we have rain, rain and yet more rain. The whole of West Wales seems to have been plunged into a great big bowl of mist and murk and it’s not at all pleasant out there. Bring back the freezing temperatures...

Wind against Tide

One of the reasons we built a house here is that its such a good location for windsurfing. With 4 miles of sandy beach on our doorstep and plenty of Westerly winds and waves, the seafront from Borth to Ynyslas is perfect. But that isn’t all, we also have the more sheltered waters of the...

Brace Yourselves!

They say some silly things on the News sometimes and actually give very little information. First up they say there are 18 Flood warnings in place across Wales, but give no indication of where these are. Then they say that forecaters are expecting more rain in the next couple of days and people are being...
