Welsh dirty dozen

It's hard to even count the number of times that, over the years, I've written about the wild west wonders of my beloved Wales. Countless times I've etched out in magazine pages just what a stunning place this is, and how it's one of the best places on earth to ride a bike (when the sun shines).

So, for a good number of years now I've been living in "exile", but when I do get the chance to ride back onto my home turf I grab it with both hands. Here are a dozen "dirty" images from a dozen day's of Welsh mini road trips I made last year, making the most of the unusual Indian summer and changing of the colours.
