Enter the Dragon // Blake Samson ~ BikePark Wales
Growing up in Wales, the story of the red Welsh Dragon is one that you learn whilst you are toddling around. The historic battles that formed what Wales is today and the courageous Dragon that freed the citizens. With the red dragon flown proudly on the countries flag, it is a constant reminder of the times that once were.
Many centuries ago, dragons roamed the land. The dragons battled over every town and home in the land. An ice dragons cold hearts could plunder worlds into eternal winter. Trampled towns and cliff top battles was all that lay in the dragons wake. Until the red Dragon, saviour of the land, put an end to their wicked ways. Blood pouring from its chest, the red dragon took a final blow at the ice dragon, liberating the cities from its wintery past! Returning to its cave, the red dragon fell into an endless sleep, and was never seen again.
