Default Mountain Bike mischief in Penrhyn Quarry.

A few snaps of my morning ride through Penrhyn Quarry, near Bethesda, North Wales. Taken with the XZ-1.

G'day Simon

Very scenic those quarries ... and the hills & valleys & trees & that fella in one of the pics too. Love the old house - what a lot of work for the builder all those many years ago

Regards, Phil

Ozzie... old quarries are indeed a nice place to "play"... even when the land's private and you're in danger of being thrown out...lol...
Steven R... the XZ-1 is a very useful companion- and that fast lens helps an awful lot in dark places such as the woods where I took the shot of the tree- enabling the use of low iso's and adequate shutter speed.

Good stuff Simon. Nice that you can combine the two hobbies. I like the scenic valley shot, I've ridden that valley road when I used to do time trials on my road bike.

Slate is great rock isn't it. The old barack buildings look great but you can see why they had fireplaces front and back, it doesn't insulate well at all. My old granddad used to work the slate up in Llanberris.

The red maple in the garden next to the rhody tells a story doesn't it. Someone cared enough to try and make it home.

Scouse- many cyclists use the old A5 route for time trials,as I still do- partly due to the fabulous scenery and to the roads being fairly quiet..!
Yes,slate is nice- but alas,very cold indeed..!
