General cycling advice ( NOT technical ! )
6 posts • Page 1 of 1
I travelled the route with my bike last year with no problem. It's advisable to book, and the staff are very helpful. I continued my journey through mid-Wales with a stop-off for the Royal Welsh Show and then on to Swansea; a fantastic train ride.
Thanks for the info - I have three days, no itinerary as yet apart from a visit to Dolgoch bunkhouse and Gospel Pass so any suggestions welcome. Is there a preferred direction to do Gospel Pass ? Also looking for a second nights accommodation around Hay, Builth or Brecon. B&B , pub or bunkhouse will do fine.
Rode up from the Glasbury side a couple of years ago, towards the end of a reasonably long day. Don't know if I choose the correct route, but it was very steep in places! So... if you like a challenge, that could be the way over for you. Both sides are really scenic, so you maybe do it at the beginning of the day, rather than at the end. On the south side the climb is much more gradual. The pub in Llanthony abbey is worth a stop, not often you can sit in the ruins of a medieval abbey and enjoy a pint!
