Usky goes to Usk - again

I cycled out to Usk again this morning, although on a slightly different route to my previous Usk jaunts. An excellent ride as it turned out with a couple of interesting hills and some stunning scenery.

Usky's route to Usk and back (marked in red)
This 33 mile ride climbs 813 feet onto the Shirenewton Ridge, that's 795 feet above sea level), before descending to the Usk Valley for the trip back towards Newport. A thoroughly enjoyable ride that burns a little over 2000 calories, which is two thirds of my 'standard' daily target. :)
