“Thank you very much for a wonderful Beano in Snowdonia. You really do discover amazing areas for cycling. The ride from Brynkir across the common land with no sign of habitation, apart from sheep, the sudden view of the estuary and Porthmadog, and the unbelievable descent to Prenteg defies description – wonderful.” – Clive Paul
