Big Welsh weekender (Sat Eve) – 16th February
After the day at Antur Stiniog, we left the other Godiva Trailriders to head home while me and Lump headed South.
We headed to Barmouth, parked on the Promanade and headed for the nearest chippy. After a hectic day on the bike it was great just to sit and chill, with a bag of chips and a cracking sunset.
Chips eaten, we headed inland to Machynlleth, and got our stuff sorted in the bunkhouse. The original plan was to head over to the Winnstay Hotel for a few beers, but I heard off Fraz one of our local mountain biking mates, that The Skinners Arms was closing that weekend.
Now the Skinners has been the scene of many post ride beers so it was only right to drink in there on it’s last weekend. We left at about 10:30, knackered from the day’s riding, but I’m sure the place was still full well into the early hours…
Nant-Yr-Arian in the morning…….
