Thanks to Russell for putting this 2nd Wheelers awayday together, and it’s fair to say it is a bit special. The route starts in Builth Wells, crosses the Cambrian mountains via the notorious Devils Staircase, before returning through the Elan Valley.
There’s no denying there are some steep bits – but they’re really not that long, walkable in fact. We’ll take it steady and all get around together.
If you like your scenery on the spectacular side, this one has it in spades. Cancel any plans you may have and put this ride in your diary – you really don’t want to miss out on this one.
( All counties for the drive to and ride are currently open – there is a fallback awayday plan should further Welsh lockdowns scupper the plan )
See you at the Groe car park (£4 all day ) in Built Wells at 09:00
