Kington to: Aberystwyth
This route covers approx 50 miles through the Cambrian mountains (hills really). It's an exhilarating ride following fast flowing rocky rivers,hills and forestry. The corners are out of this world, there fast with good visability and excellent grippy surface's. There's no worn tarmac,potholes etc that have a tendency to install fear in all of us. There are no fixed speed cameras in any of the national speed limit areas of this route, so safe fast riding is achievable. The Foresters Arms in Llanfihangel-Nant-Melan is a nice biker-friendly stop with a good cup of coffee.
Enjoy this route like i have many times remembering to keep to the speed limits through the villages and where applicable. Take a breather,put your visor up,relax your wrists and get ready for the next awesome section of this route. Neil.Cardiff.GSXR-750.
Brecon to: Hirwaun
The A470 from Brecon has already been submitted as a cracking ride. This route makes it better. After passing Pen Y Fan (bloody big mountain) and the first reservoir (Welsh water for the Midlands PLC), turn off onto the A4059 to Hirwaun. First mile uphill through Forestry, then open grazing land - the Beacons! Flat out bends, no speed interference people or boxes and nice white-painted stones alongside the road to remind you where the tarmac stops. Watch out for the sheep though (when in Wales......).
Cirencester to: Cirencester
From Cirencester, Glos, where we live, to Gloucester on the A417, round Gloucester towards the Forest of Dean then branch of towards Newent on the B4215, then on towards Dymock. (Quite amzingly, there was very little traffic at all, and no Gatso's - what a bonus). We then joined the A4172, then back onto the A417, (which is a ridiculously straight Roman Road but with long sweeping bends with great vision), all the way to the A49 and to Leominster.
From there, and this is where it gets really good, we took first the A44, then the A4112, and the A438 all the way to Brecon where we joined the A470. The panoramic views as well as the hills and dips made this part of the journey better than sex. I just wish my mate from the Isle of Man was with me. I'd have shown her that we have the equal of the Mountain Course across the water!!
From there, and I reckon this was the best part, onto the A40 to Abergavenny. This road, about 16 miles is phenomenal. Great road surface, fast straights and bends that just go on and on. Twice I over cooked it and had the back wheel twitching.
