Rides during late Dec and early January 2012

Not been too active since Christmas, partly due to the weather, and partly because I've been away with work.

Managed a few short rides to Llay and back (around 21 miles) on 24th Dec and 28th Dec, and for a bit of variety also did a few short rides over to Helsby and back (about 17 miles) on 7th Jan and 28th Jan - see route below:

Went out on 8th January with Chester Road Club, we ended up doing about 53 miles, and stopped at the cafe near Delamere Railway Station - unfortunately it rained all the way back from there to Chester ! Route below:

On 15th January, I did my normal route out to Llay, then back to Chester and then did a loop over to Helsby and back - on the way back on this ride I usually go over quite a steep hill (the road from Frodsham cemetry parallel to the A56, with the top of the hill by a caravan park) before dropping back down into Helsby.

On 29th Jan I did my normal route down Lache Lane, but continued on to Cefn Y Bedd, partway up "The Steps", into Brymbo, and on to Coedpoeth, and then down into Wrexham before going back to Llay and back through Rossett and Doddleston and back to Chester. Route below:

So, total mileage between 24th Dec and 29th Jan was only 205 miles. Will have to up this in the next couple of months.
