Day 9 : Newport to Llanmadoc (101 miles)

Day 9 complete – 101 miles, 1400m climbing + a very steep hill up to the campsite! Matt left at 8am and arrived at 4.15pm.

833 Miles completed to-date, ONLY approx 3,600 miles left

Steve and I took George for a walk around the sea wall this morning before leaving the campsite – sadly he couldn’t get near the sea!! Fortunately it stayed dry for Matt’s ride but we’ve had very heavy showers tonight – first rain of the trip.

Travelled through Cardiff, Penarth, Barry, Ogmore-by-Sea, round to Porthcawl, up to Port Talbot, Swansea, Mumbles, Gower Peninsula, Harkmill to Reynoldston, Fairy Hill, Gowerton and on to the South Wales Touring Park at Llangennech.
