Starting point

CF15 8LT

This is a very hilly route and there are steep sections. Very challenging by CSC standards.
Starting from the Tynant Inn, our first test is climbing up the Heol Y Fforest (the road passed castle Coch) 11% turning into Fforest Fawr for our first stretch of gravel before descending to the Taff trail. We will then work our way to Treforest via the Taff trail and quiet roads and some main roads; before crossing the Taff and riding on quiet roads to our next stretch of gravel through Coed Y Gedrys. Coming out onto the ‘Route Des Alpes’ heading towards Pentyrch the road hits 28% for a short distance walking a few hundred meters is an option. Once we navigate through Pentyrch we venture off road where we will need to use our skills to navigate roots, rocks , loose surfaces and some steep sections. We then descend steeply off road down to the Tynant inn.
