DAY 5 - Bala - Weston-Super-Mare , 191 miles (approx).

Starting in Snowdonia, before swinging out east to pick up the passes at Milltir Cerrig and along the shore of Lake Vyrnwy to Bwlch y Groes. From there we head down through mid Wales along the spine of the Cambrian Mountains using a mixture of A and B roads with some hefty gradients, crossing the Brecon Beacons via the Gospel Pass (the final high pass) and down to Abergavenny. To avoid a big detour via Gloucester we will use the M4 to cross the Severn, then down the M5 to WSM, where the rugby club have kindly offered free camping, and we might even have a beer, so do join us!
