Some images from stage 6 of the 2012 Tour of Britain just before the King of the Mountains finish of the Brecon Beacons Cat 1 climb at The Storey Arms. Some of the Swansea Wheelers cycled up, at least one (ahem!) went in the car.
Plenty of spectators… check out the queue for the toilets!

An Amazing Trip
Some images from a recent trip to the Grand Canyon. The helicopter trip seems pricey but it is well worth it with amazing views and disbelief at the staggering scale of it. You’ll wish you had if you don’t!
