Following on from my earlier post where I began with Anglesey’s #2 High Point, after learning of the top six highest points on Anglesey where I live, when I had a work call-out to near the #1 point today (for which I cycled to), I decided to take a detour to it.

I stopped on the way home to scoff a naughty burger, and sip some yummy coffee. By the time I returned home (the return journey under nice rainfall) I had clocked 40+miles… nice 😀
