Nice places to ride in Wales?

#1 Post by asharin » Sat Jul 09, 2016 3:44 pm

As I'm moving to Mountain Ash in August, I'd love to know any cool places to ride, decent biker friendly pubs etc, preferably in the south of wales, but not adverse to a ride to the north!

Mostly all of Wales! If you don't want to go too far north there is the Brecon Beacons, Elan Valley (mid Wales), and if you are adventurous to go a bit farther, Lakes Bala and Vyrnwy have some stunning scenery and brilliant roads :D . And of course a great biking cafe at the Ponderosa (Horseshoe Pass nr Llangollen).
It's so simple to be wise. Just think of something stupid to say then don't say it

Great roads around Monmouthshire and up in to the Brecon Beacons. Further afield is Llandovery and on to Lampeter (fantastic all the way from Brecon).

Biking stops:

IMO on of the best is the Steel Horse Cafe near Raglan" onclick=";return false; You get an amazing selection of riders there and a great place to see shall we say more old school bikes :)

Abergavenny bus station - main meeting place as pretty massive parking spaces and great for people watching as you get some right weirdos there...

West End Cafe in Llandovery is a nice meeting spot and is pretty full of bikers
