Cardiff to Caerphilly

12 miles (20 km)

This is a lovely ride that follows National Cycle route 8 and the Taff Trail from Cardiff to Caerphilly.
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 leaving the river and heading east towards Caerphilly along a dismantled railway line and quiet roads. This final stretch has lovely views of Nantgarw before heading into the centre of Caerphilly and finishing at the castle.
