Cycling across Wales Pt. 2…

Continued… So, I left the warm community of Pont-Rhyd-Y-Groes back out into the rain. I was pretty much expecting minor road all the way to Rhayader now, albeit 25-odd miles of it! However, it wasn’t long before the ‘Lon Cambria’ route directed me onto some forest track.

A new shop in the making…

This gallery contains 18 photos.

Hopefully by now you have all found us in our new location (it’s not far – just two doors up the hill from the old one!) and we haven’t confused you too much by changing our name either!? Anyway, now we’re (more or less!) settled in I thought it a good time to share some of our photos of the ‘work in progress’ to show what went into producing the, I’m sure you’ll agree, fantastic little shop we are left…
