Friday the 18th of January was set for this year’s Tour Prologue ride, with 40 and 25 mile routes hosted from Crug Glas. It’s always a fun event and spirits were high despite the gloomy outlook: heavy rain and moderate winds forecast all morning.
Even with the wet roads, rain and wind, everyone was back in time for lunch and noone had need of my assistance this year. Lunch was fantastic, as expected, and Eddie Butler gave an entertaining and good humoured speech in his rôle as ambassador for the charity Prostate Cancer Wales.
So we look forward to the main event on the 18th of May this year — it will be here before we know it.
