clarkpm4242-I was about half an hour behind you!!The two walkers going up Bwlch maen gwynedd told me someone else had passed them.Thought I might catch a glimpse of you on the wayfarers.Its basically my back yard.It never ceases to amaze me how few people I ever see there….thank god!Its all rubbish anyhoo 😉Posted 7 years agospandex_bobSubscriber
Just got in from doing the wayfarer loop, all dry and dusty trails apart from the the bog by the sheep pen above Llanraeder. Great riding, a couple of tactical snoozes when out of the wind, not many people and only two other bicyclists. First time in the area (if you discount the abortive attempt on the same route in the jan snows), definately worth some more exploring. Looks more weather-proof than the clywds?Posted 7 years agoollieMember
one: Isn't a bad descent at all, rode it for the first time a couple of weeks back and it's ok, couple of gates, but neither techy or steep just pleasant.Posted 7 years ago
Two: Isn't really a descent and is just a trip across a field after a short sharp climb.
Three: If you even find this bridleway you're doing better than me, It just isn't there.

I remember that bit from when I did it last year – it felt like I was just wading through an overgrown garden pond… 🙂
'Tis a brilliant ride. I particularly liked the descent heading north towards Llandrillo; super fast!Posted 7 years agoPemboMember
We spent about 15 minutes trying to navigate the bog and still ended up with wet feet, what's the best line?
Started in Llanarmon DC which meant we had Wayfarer as the final descent, but the climb up nearly did for me after forgetting my camelbak and stopping at every village spar to load up on water and capri suns!
That road climb out of Llangynog is a bit of a slog but overall a fantastic ride, looking forward to doing it again this summer.Posted 7 years agoneilb67Member
Did the Wayfarer last week starting from Llandrillo. As for the route across the bog, I hugged the wire fench as I approached the metal gate then scrambled up the little bank on the left straight after the gate, over the fence and headed for the higher ground on the left. Still boggy but not as bad as down below.
Agreed about the road climb. Is there another option to get back to Llandrillo?Posted 7 years ago
Instead of the road climb go along the road at the bottom of the valley; it's a nice easy, quiet road and saves most of the climbing for the end after going off-road. If I remember rightly it is rideable (just!) but it's not very far to push as you've done most of the horizontal distance by then.Posted 7 years ago
