Rhayader ride – a few pics
I was there a couple of weeks ago, also in fair weather. It’s a great area if you like big ‘out-there’ rides.Posted 4 years ago
Mind you, given that the water from the reservoirs falls all the way to Birmingham by gravity I can never understand why there are some nasty little *##*!@# uphills between the Visitor Centre and Rhayader which just hurt mentally and physically when all you want to do is freewheel into town after a big day in the hills 😳AlexSubscriber
Last time was in a snowstorm, time before that was in a thunderstorm. Today was quite nice.
Gully descent quite exciting, double rocky track back to Rhayader extremely exciting. Lots of tough climbing on soggy grass as well.
Proper old school XC. Ace 🙂Posted 4 years agoAmbroseMember
Chrispo- The Tywi track is wonderful isn’t it? I’m lucky enough to live close-by (by some standards anyway) so can ride it whenever I need a boost- it reminds me that the world really can be filled with fun- at least some of the time. I’ll be spending a weekend bothying there soon too.Posted 4 years ago
Yes, the Tywi fords/puddles really bring out the inner child. Especially when overtaking the 4x4s!! Not sure I’d want to take my new bike through them though until it’s a little less shiny 😉
The Llanerchi woods descent from the weather station is also a cracker, and the bridleway along to the Claerwen dam is like a mini Tywi Track (wet feet guaranteed). Coming down off the moor from Drygarn does it for me too. It’s all stunning on a nice day, and a bit spooky when the mist is down. Love it. All of these are segments on the following ride I did recently: http://app.strava.com/activities/77985352Posted 4 years ago
