  1. This is my first ever post on RumRation so please be gentle with me. :p

    On Saturday 26th April 2008, we intend to ascend / descend Mount Snowdon by mountain bike, in order to raise funds and support for Help For Heroes.

    At 1,085 m (3,560 ft), Mount Snowdon in Gwynedd, Wales, is the highest mountain in Wales and the highest British mountain south of the Scottish Highlands.

    The route we will be using for the event is the Llanberis Path. The Llanberis Path leads from the small town of Llanberis, approximately along the course of the Snowdon Mountain Railway. This is one of the longer routes (8 miles return), although as the slope is mostly comparatively shallow, it is considered to be the best route to access the summit by mountain bike.

    The event will start from the (free) lakeside car park in Llanberis, just off the A4086, at 0830 hrs (clicky linky for map -,53.122956,-4.127397&time=&date=&ttype=&q=A4086+%4053.122956,+-4.127397&sll=53.122324,-4.126933&sspn=0.018285,0.039911&ie=UTF8&ll=53.123225,-4.127491&spn=0.009142,0.026994&z=16&iwloc=addr&om=1))

    If you wish to sponsor us, our online fund raising page can be found at -

    This is not an exclusive event, if you want to join us then you are more than welcome! The more riders we get, the more funds and support we can raise for Help For Heroes. Don't forget to bring some cake for the summit picnic. :thumright:

    Please PM me if you do want to take part, so i can get an idea of the number of riders we can expect.

  2. Good luck for such a worthy cause. Catchy title by the way. I thought for a moment that you were going to push a Motor Torpedo Boat up Snowdon!
