The Scout troop held its annual cycle/camp expedition to North Wales and Anglesey during the School Half Term, traveling by van and cars to Porthmadoc, the starting point for the seven day expedition.
The Scouts, the Scout Masters and two Assistant Scout Masters (Skip, Bosun and Stitchy) on arrival at Portmadoc kitted up their bikes for the long expedition ahead, carrying all their camping and cooking equipment, along with their personal kits on their bikes and then immediately set off on a further great adventure for these young explorers.
The expedition took the route north from Porthmadoc following the east coast line of North Wales and skirting Snowdonia to Caernarfon, then on to Bangor, crossing to Anglesey via the Menia Bridge, cycling and camping around Anglesey, visiting Holyhead, returning to North wales via the Menia Bridge, making our way back to Porthmadoc through areas of Snowdonia National Park and visiting many other places of interest on route, including Caernarfon Castle. The Scoutsí expedition covered a total of 150 miles which was very good going for the Scouts aged from 10.5 years to 15 years. The last day, the Friday, was spent hiking and sightseeing around Porthmadoc, visiting places like Porthmeirion and its glass works, before traveling back by van and cars on the Saturday.
The Scouts and leaders thoroughly enjoyed the expedition and our looking forward to next years expedition, that it is provisionally planned will be to France, maybe visiting Belleme.
