A variation on a couple of old classics. The ride starts by following the coast of Cardigan bay south to St. Dogmaels and then follow's the Teifi to near its source at the ruins of Strata Florida Abbey. From here, we climb over Ffair Rhos and Ysbyty Ystwyth to Devil's Bridge via the famous Arch.
Main roads to Llangurig and Llanidloes soon give way to Llyn Clywedog and the Dylife Mountain Road. From Machynlleth, there is a fairly flat section to Newtown before following the A483 through Llan'dod to Builth.
After Builth, we doff caps to the Elenith and its successor with the traditional set of climbs to Tregaron. From Tregaron we take the direct main road route back to Aberystwyth where hot drinks and basic catering will be available.
