You don't get telegraph poles like this any just any old B road.

Day 4

Route for day 4 of Project Lucozade

Sunday 13th March 2011

The final day and another exceptionally early start.  And again in two legs, but this time I had the company of my wife for the first part down into Ruthin.


Leg 1 : Clawdnewydd to Ruthin.

Leg 2 : Ruthin to Clawdnewydd.

Total : 10.0 miles (don't ask me why it doesn't add up!


Exactly as forecasted, the rain stopped at 6.30 am sharp; then as the sun rose so did the skies clear.  Soaking grass verges meant my boots were soon wet through.  Keri however quickly picked up the Lucozade trail and I was soon snapping away.

Almost the entire B5105 is pavement free and it is one very pedestrian unfriendly road.  But some of the stretches this morning with their steep high banks, no verge at all and right hand bends were treacherous.  Couple that with most motorists conviction that you only need give pedestrians an inch, and it is a pleasant surprise to me that I am alive to write this now.

The walk to Ruthin took 2 hrs dead.  Banana nineses and a gulp of our own Lucozade - which I resisted throwing into the hedge.  Then Keri drove home while I started the uphill slog back to the car.

1 x sunny spring morning.

1 x dead fox.

1 x caught short nip into the trees at Pool Parc.

1 x near miss with a white pickup.
