  1. Ridden on 23rd Aug (am) and my 21st LLW. I rode the route as described on the website – the route described in the book excludes the enjoyable loop through Angle. I also did the short out and back to see West Angle Bay where there is a cafe for those needing sustenance. I logged 53km with 630m of height gain including the couple of short but high-percentage ascents towards the end of the ride.

    There’s lots of lovely coastal scenery to view throughout the ride but it’s the first of Jack’s Welsh rides on which I’ve failed to spot any raptors.

    “Gair i’r gall” – Note that as well as on most weekends the roads through the firing range can usually be accessed throughout the month of August.

  2. I did this ride last week, including the Angle loop. It seems that once you hit the coast on the Angle loop that the route now goes onto a private driveway. I was unfortunate enough to be stopped by a resident in a car who told me that I shouldn’t be there. She told me it was a permissive footpath as the actual path goes along the beach.

    The early kicker climbs are a great warm up, the later 20% climb felt harder than it should. The gravel across the top of the cliffs by Castlemartin is awesome.
