Merthyr Tydfil to Brecon

25 miles (40 km)

This spectacular ride follows National Cycle route 8 through the Brecon Beacons National Park. The scenery is truly stunning as you follow a series of traffic free paths and the Taff trail through this beautiful region.
The ride includes a lovely stretch along the River Taff at the start before following the trail around the striking Pontsticill, Pentwyn and Talybont Reservoirs. The final run along the Monmouthshire and Brecon canal takes you into Brecon.
