Starting off from Pontrhydfendigaid at 10am we headed towards the Abbey and had some photos quickly before setting off
From here we headed up into the mountains and started climbing up a single track which ran parallel to a road used by logging trucks so we were glad to avoid those.
Weather was overcast and reminded us of 'Gorillas in the Mist' Here's a view from the top
From the top if the climb, the tracks were amazing!! Miles and miles of fast flowing track which was peppered by lake like puddles and interweaving crossings with the river
From the top of the viewpoint we headed down towards a big hill climb. Here's a picture of the hill climb looking back from the top
Continuing around the lake, we started up a logging road which mountain bikers were not supposed to ride along. Oops !
From here we started our approach to Llanwrtyd Wells down and along some tracks with horses and views
We even received a fly past by a Tornado jet
This half contained a section that we were a little concerned with, that was due to the fact that we were going through a military training ground. Here's where we started
The tarmac on this road was superb, totally smooth & better than any other road we've been on. Passing a few soldiers here and there. Lots of landrovers and army trucks too.
Carwyn impressivley charged ahead in this section and lead the way all across the training area. The rest of us had time to enjoy the view a bit.
From Sennybridge we made our way down the valley towards Brecon. Views were still good too
The road to Brecon seemed to go forever and after a while we eventually got there.
Arriving in the B&B, we were impressed with how welcoming and accommodating out hosts were. the Bridge Cafe in Brecon is HIGHLY recommended !
