I've heard of The Horseshoe Pass.

A photograph taken on today's ride showing Little Knoll on the right and Long Knoll on the left (in the background).

These are at Maiden Bradley and I shall climb them one day.

Bit of a grey scene at Bala Lake this morning, but an enjoyable ride across from Oswestry via Llangynog.

Lovely evening so I had to go out on a 40 miler on The Monkey. I ended up down in Bath.

How many balloons can you see?

Not strictly a 'ride' but I used the train to get there and shanks pony to get around.

Out and about in Central London this morning with Chris Ward, standing on an illustrious door step; having earlier visited
Buckingham Palace to see the Changing of the Guard, from within the Palace grounds.
