A true mountain classic
Snowdon, Ranger loop.
“80mph winds and driving rain took away much of the fun, but it was every bit as epic as a big mountain experience should be, and the quality of the riding and the spirit of my companions left an indelible mark on my memory.
“The narrow window of opportunity imposed by cycling restrictions means most riders tackle it in the winter. Which brings a high probability of bad weather.
“With this in mind, it’s important to treat the mountain with the respect it deserves; plan for the worst and make sure someone knows where you are. Take a few precautions, time your assault and you’ll find the rewards are well worth the risk.” Danny Milner.
