Avoid in winter unless it's a warm dry winter!
Some sections are in the mountain passes that get blocked with snow any time from late October to April. ( even in mid-may some years).
If you see a fuel stop top-up, is generally my rule if around 1/2 a tank level.
The same for a loo break?
I normally carry a snack or two in the Panniers/Topbox just in case! a liter of fuel in a fuel cell is probably over kill but if you have a Coleman petrol stove and a mini kettle why not? Good chippy at the time of writing on the front at Aberystwyth.

Tidy mix of back roads, plenty of fast sections with twisty's and views to match.
This route commanded some good sweeping roads through picturesque villages amidst massive farmhouse structures that represent land wealth. A few roundabouts but helped to keep on back roads. Road surface awful after Stafford pot holes big enough to break your neck in.
This is a fantastic route that takes about 1.5 hours, great for getting up to or back from Snowdonia. The first section to Bala is pretty well known, fast sweeping bends with beautiful scenery, always be on your guard for the police, it is one of there favorite roads too & patrol it often but we didn't see any this time!
The second part of the road is tighter,twistier & has some very beautiful scenery but also some scary corners. It is a mountain pass,watch for tight hairpins,big drops & sheep!!
It's brilliant though. Enjoy!
Just something I thought others may like
This road from/to Aberystwyth is just beautiful and the run up through Bala into snowdonia is just wonderful
Ride it all or ride parts of it it's I'll blow your mind
This is my favourite route from my home in Oxfordshire to my hometown of Millford Haven using some of the best biking roads in mid Wales.
Nice alternative way to go to Tenby with a mixture of tight and faster flowing roads ,stop of in Narberth for a coffee , from there head for Tenby (or you could head for Haverfordwest , st David's )
Local to me but why bother going further afar when such good rides on your doorstep for a decent few hours ride.
