The Brecon Beacons really are cool, Carpetfibre.
I was lucky enough to race the Junior tour of Wales there last year. :D

Some pictures of last week on Tenerife:

What? You're kidding, right?
That road looks smooth compared to some of the roads we have to deal with out here.

Well.. as long as you avoided the potholes, which were everywhere, it was smooth.

But keep in mind that there was a fierce headwind and that it seemed like to road was flat, although it was going up 5-7%.
(Oh, Why on earth am I complaining about all this..? It was a wonderful experience. :D )
