A483 : Llandovery - Beulah ( Llyn Brianne reservoir ) - Builth Wells

Mid Wales > United Kingdom > Europe

After a Bacon butty and mug of tea at the West-End cafe in Llandovery, trace your way along the unclassifieds to the Llyn Brianne Reservoir in the Cambrian Mountains, the locals know this area as "Little Switzerland". Not a bad part of Wales and it's a pretty little route with some nice scenery thrown in. It's by no means a quick route as it's very very narrow in places with some awkward bends and blind crests. If you're into taking it easy and just admiring the scenery then you will enjoy it. It's not one you'd be keen to return to if you're into faster, more flowing roads, but it does have it's good points. Take it easy and ride it carefully as you'll probably lose your signal on the mobile, so it's not the best place in the world to break down! You could head towards Tregaron and the 'Devil's Bridge' from the reservoir or do as I did and return south via Abergwesyn and Beulah. You're also not far from 'Llanddewi Brefi', where you can be 'The only gay in the village', if that's your thing lol. A couple of SNAPS here for your enjoyment. Check out the 'Dogs Ears' that my lads is sporting, they got a lot of laughs on our Spanish trip, and the Welsh sheep kept well away lol. There are lots of great roads in this area and lots of nice places too. You're only a short blat away from the Elan Valley which is definitely worth a visit. Why not combine the two for a good day out?

A4113 : Leintwardine - Bromfield

Pleasant rural road, nice climb out of Leintwardine with some pleasant bends leading to the Fiddlers Elbow, then a few sweepers down to the switchback straight heading towards Bromfield. I have seen a mobile camera working on the run into Bromfield itself.

B4355 : Dolfor - Knighton

Mid Wales > United Kingdom > Europe

A really good alternative to the sometimes heavily policed A483. Start at Newtown on the A483 to take in the twisties then do a left onto the B4355 at Dolfor ( blink & youll miss it !). Nice view a few miles in at the top of Moel Wilym. High hedgerows limit visibility towards the end of the stretch but still a great road.
From Knighton take the A488 to Pennybont near to Crossgates for a brew & scoff at the cafe nxt to the garage. No 3 figure speeds needed to enjoy this road.

A483 : Llandrindod Wells - Newtown

South East Wales > United Kingdom > Europe

A really good stretch of twisty tarmac which begins by the A44 at one end. Not much in the way of spectacular scenary but a great blast and some good corners shouldn't disappoint.
