Starting point

CF11 9HW

Starting from Sophia Gardens we’ll take the Taff Trail up to Caerphilly. This route is all cycle path, bar a short section of road through Tongwynlais. From Caerphilly Castle we’ll follow quiet back streets to pick up a cycle track adjacent Bedwas Road. A short section along a quiet lane will bring us to the Riverside Park cycle track adjacent the Rhymney River. We then need to cross Newport Road and tackle a short sharp climb up to another cycle track high above the main road. This will take us to Machen. A steep drop down and back across Newport Road will lead us to quiet undulating lanes to Draethen and the Hollybush Inn. Lunch is served from 12:00pm. After lunch we’ll take quiet but fairly undulating roads back towards Caerphilly. We’ll pass the Maenllwyd Inn and take a steady climb up and over Rudry Mountain. A quick decent brings us out on Van Road and back to Caerphilly Castle. We’ll then retrace our route back to Cardiff.
