This week's trAle run will be Thunder Road - this starts from the SIRHOWY COUNTRY PARK NOT ABERCARN (sorry for shouting!). If you follow the A467 past Risca, at the end of the dual carriageway there's a roundabout, take the first exit signed for the Sirhowy Country park and and waste/recycling centre and there's parking after a couple of hundred yards on the barrier. The route is about 6 miles and has is a bit more rocky/steeper climbing than Abercarn, so trail shoes are a must, but walking is most definitely allowed! The descent is on good trails and the last section is along the Sirhowy trail (tarmac). Meet at the usual time - 6.30 for a prompt 6.45 start!
