The Forest of Dean was the venue for our first cycle club meeting this year. Nineteen cyclists were there enjoying the rides, and boy were we lucky with the weather, hardly a drop of the wet stuff. The days before had been incredibly wet, so wet in fact that the ferry in the pictures was unable to run due to the river being in spate. I won't tell you how my wife described us for being so lucky, she just can't believe it.
We stayed in the forest area for Friday and Saturday night so managed to get good rides done for both Saturday and Sunday.
Have a look at the link as the Forest is a magical place with a lot of history. Its only 50 miles from Cardiff and well worth a visit.
