Maps and Schedules

I've been hard at work making maps and putting the finishing touches to my South Wales Traverse schedule. The maps, broken down into the six stages, are available on-line for anyone who is interested, links at the end. I have also published my schedule on-line. Stand back and admire the level of detail - no, I'm not that anal, the spreadsheet was created by others and I've just updated it with my pacings. Isn't it just a thing of beauty though...

After all that sitting down, hunched over the computer keyboard I headed out into the garden to cut the grass. Very nearly left that particular chore too late as the rain started just as I was finishing up. So it was back inside double quick - which is a damn shame as I was ready to chill on the decking. Finished off with an hour on the bike and some ab work before hitting the sofa...

So here are my traverse stage maps:-

Stage 1
Stage 2
Stage 3
Stage 4
Stage 5
Stage 6

There are a few deviations from conventional wisdom regarding the route with the main, and possibly controversial, difference being my alternative route over to the A40, missing out the Glen Usk Estate.
