The route ascends from Talgarth on tarmac before joining the ‘Three Rivers Ride’ bridleway towards Cefn Moel. After the rim of broad cwm, steep, tight and twisty singletrack plunges to Blaenau Draw farm. You cross the A479 and climb on a mix of tarmac, farm track and then moorland trail to the shoulder below Pen Trumau. Finish on the same rocky descent as in the previous route before heading back to Talgarth via tarmac and more bridleway.

 Great route with some stunning scenery. Quite muddy in sections, even after low rain levels over previous couple of weeks.
