Day 6 – 6 July

A young river Wye with a long long way to go

   

A gloomy start leaving Bala.          But the day soon brightened up

   Sheep have shown no interest in us, but cattle rush up to admire the bike

Delegates on the way to a conference on ‘Brexit: what’s in it for us?’ The road is steeper than it looks.  Happily all brakes were functioning.

AND THERE IS SNOWDON!
     – Well, it is there, but shrouded in cloud behind the nearer peak on the right.  Will it be clear for tomorrow’s (now today’s) climb?  We are about to find out, after a night in a roadside pub call Pen Y Gwryd, ‘a classic mountaineers lodge where Hillary and Tenzing trained for the conquest of Mount Everest.’  (No, not that Hillary).  We’ll be in their footsteps (not in hers).
