Part one, Belfast to Dublin, Dublin Ferry to Holyhead, 2 nights in Home Farm camp site. We then visited Beaumaris castle. Nice hidden gem of Wales.

Not much pedalling done this week. Bit of a head cold. Power cranks fitted. Not power meters. Some cyclocross coaches appearing out of the wood work, some that haven't even ridden a cross bike never mind raced a cross bike. 3 hour spin on Sunday around coastal path and then up through Leadminds.
So the last few weeks have been pure chaos. Dad, aka Big Brian, had been fighting cancer from Christmas time. And on the 15th he lost that fight. Asbestos. Ok fucker of a disease.
