My alarm went off 2 hours before sun rise, it’s not that I wanted to capture the sunrise, but time was of the essence. In order to get a long ride in, I had to get up early, skip breakfast and eat on the go.
Whilst the coffee brewed, I got changed and added food to my bike bags in the small hours, then I set off into the cold morning.
The air was damp, but refreshing. The cold woke me up better than coffee. I set a strong pace for the time of day and set about riding to Moel Famau on my mountain bike, topping out with a hike a bike section and then dropping off the easy side for a long ride back along the country roads
