Ben & Julian's Adventure in Wales.

Just got back from another unicycling weekend with Ben in North Wales. 42.5miles total. Brilliant Weather - Stayed at Llwyn Onn, a small campsite at Rhydlydan. Only 5-6 miles from the Alwen and Brenig Trails

Alwen Trail
7.5 miles around Lake Alwen, did it on smooth tyred 29inch road unicycles. A bit difficult for me but Ben was fine. Probably better on MUNI. It’s a good trail about half on great single tracks and half on firm forest roads. Good views of the lake. Free parking -easy to follow with little chance of getting lost. Ben said it was his BEST trail ever!! I would agree but on my 26inch MUNI!

Lakes Vyrnwy
12 miles quiet road going around lake Vyrnwy, a few gentle hills, but we made it around with NO UPD's. Free parking at head of lake and also at the south end near the Café.

Brenig Trail
9.5 miles around lake Brenig next to the Alwen Trail. Mostly forest tracks with good surface and a mile section on very quiet main road. Pay and display at the Brenig Visitors Centre. They have toilets and a café. We then went back to the Alwen Trail -a bit much for me - I struggled but we had a great chill on a beach by the lake.

On the last day we planned to do the Alwen Trail again but the weather broke and I was feeling my achillies tendon so we decided to do part of the Wirral Way on the way home. A great long weekend -but tiring.
