Aberystwyth to Liverpool

I’m about to embark on part two of my and my brother-in-law Andrew’s coastal tour of Wales which may or may not end up being extended further around the coast of Great Britain.

In 2010 we cycle camped from Aust on the English side of the Severn Bridge to Aberystwyth in a week. Including some tough cycling along the Pembrokeshire coast.

In 2011 we plan to start from Aberystwyth and head north sticking to the coast as closely as possible whilst avoiding silly hills and main roads wherever possible. We’ll head along the Lleyn peninsula and right around the coast of Anglesey. We aim to finish at Liverpool after cycling around the coast of the Wirral as returning home by train is a bit easier from there than from our initial destination which was to be Chester.

We’ll be camping each night and aim to cover around 50-60 miles (80-100 km) per day.

If you want to keep an eye on how we get on I’ll hopefully be doing daily diary entries on crazyguyonabike.com and I’ll be tweeting from the road.
