Following a rather industrial start to the ride from Newport, via Penarth RNLI station to Cardiff Docks, we briefly dropped into the Barry Docks RNLI station to meet the crew and fill up the water bottles, before heading on westward.
Somewhat unexpectedly, the scenery rapidly improved, and we were soon heading through some stunning countryside and along dramatic coastline. The next station along the coast was located within the Atlantic College grounds- one of the most stunning schools either of us have seen. Set right on the coast with incredible views across the Severn Estuary, and along the untouched coastline, it was truly amazing, and the school buildings and gardens were spectacular. Following a brief rest in the sun by the sea, in this phenomenal place, we were back on the road.
