Three Lakes Cycle

On 2nd September eight cyclists from North Wales set off on a 300 mile trip over four days to raise money for Prostate Cymru, the leading prostate health charity in Wales that supports men with benign prostate disease and prostate cancer.

Beicwyr Elusennol Eryri (the Snowdonia Charity Cyclists) for this year’s challenge included Owain Wyn and John Williams from Caernarfon, Trystan Edwards, Huw Smallwood and Rheinallt Jones from Cerrigydrudion, Rhys Evans and Alwyn Roberts from Bala and Iolo Jones from Deiniolen. The cycle included visiting three of the largest lakes in Great Britain. The tour followed the success of the group’s previous cycles including from Cerrigydrudion to the Isle of Wight, the Northern Ireland coast and four years ago, a journey from Ysgwrn in Trawsfynydd to Ypres, Belgium.

The team set off from Llyn Tegid near Bala at 9am on Sunday 2nd September. They arrived at Lake Windermere on Monday before heading towards Scotland, the longest leg of their journey. The team arrived at Loch Lomond on Wednesday 5th September, completing their epic three hundred mile challenge.

The team were kindly supported by local companies for their journey with very generous offers of sponsorship. These included Conwy MotorHome Hire providing a support vehicle for the whole three lakes tour and Gwynfor James of SportsPictures Cymru who ensured that the team had enough sugar to power them through the challenge in the form of delicious jelly babies!

Owain Wyn, one of the Snowdonia Charity Cyclists, commented, “We are extremely grateful for every help to enable us to raise as much money as possible for such a worthy cause. As men, we all appreciate the importance of a charity such as Prostate Cymru.”
