GPS Cycle and Walking Routes

Cardiff to Bridgend

32 miles (52 km)

This lovely largely off road ride follows National Cycle routes 8, 4 and the Taff trail from Cardiff to Bridgend.
You start on the River Taff in Cardiff and head along the river northwards passing the Millennium Stadium and Cardiff Castle. There are also views of the attractive riverside Bute park and the Weir on the Taff near Maindy as you leave the centre of Cardiff. You soon come to Radyr and then onto Castle Coch (the red castle) before passing through the village of Nantgarw. The ride continues along the river through Glyntaff and on to Pontypridd where you cross the River Taff.
From Pontypridd you continue on road to Tonyrefail before joining an off road section along the River Ogmore which takes you to Blackmill, and then onto Bridgend.
