Great weather for the mid week ride so seven of us went out to Cowbridge in the Vale of Glamorgan.
Its one of our usual runs and being in the Vale there's lots of lanes and many different ways of getting there. Chris lead us on his route which is on the Strava side panel.
During the war the RAF used the now dis used Llandow airfield and the rumour is that all the surrounding road signs were removed in case of an invasion. Consequently they have never been completely replaced so unless you are familiar with the lanes, or have a sat nav, its very easy to take a wrong turning. But there are many landmarks to look out for so you never get hopelessly lost.
A favourite cafe stop in the town is:
You can spend so much time here just browsing and think.........we used to have one of those.
There's always a huge selection of cakes, and my choice was Bara Brith
Here's the recipe for Bara Brith
