We went to recce the Sugar Loaf race, which is coming up soon.
It's a really good circuit of seven miles or so and I found it a longer than expected pull up to the top. The descent is a steady gradient and with strong legs could be done with a fair amount of pace.
Brilliant to get a short and much needed burst of time out amongst the hills. The panorama was expansive and the views up the Usk valley towards the Beacons were dramatic as the sun dropped below the clouds.
