Off to the land of slate and sheep for a week of ffun & ffrolics.
Been many, many times before, but we're sticking to the roads for a change.
Heart says take the pure road bike, suffer on the climbs and make up for it on the descents - compact with a 28.
Head says take the old Rockhopper with a triple, rack and panniers, struggle on the flat but retain dignity & breakfast.
Her indoors will be taking a road bike with a triple, refusing to carry anything but a knowing smile for each summit.
Days will be long and packed with steepness.
Food will just be packed.
No faffing, shopping stops or Butterfly Palaces.
Not camping, but have to get home up the Ffachwen each night.
Which would you take?
