it only rains as much as England. When it does rain though it lashes down. Unless you are a Manc, in which case youll be used to it...
Talybont to Methyr via the reservoir road - a lovely forested road with a 1500ft bwlch.
Breakfast at the Roadhouse in @ Pant.
Then onto the Black Mountain road from Brynamman to Llangatog. as seen on Top Gear - lovely fast flowing road.
On to Llandovery - we can stop at West End Cafe, if people want. A nice old school biker cafe.
Up the A40 to Brecon [always a good road and not always busy even on a June saturday!].
Down the A470, over the bwlch at Storey Arms. We probably wont be able to park on the pass, so a stop further down.
Back at Methyr, along the HOV road, A465, to Aber. Stop at Oasis for a brew and check out the bikes at the bus stop. Fuel up.
On to Llanvihangel Curcorney and up the Vale of Ewyas. Through Llanthony and Capel y Ffin. It's narrow so it may take a little time.
Stop at the Gospel Pass, the highest paved road in Wales.
Onto Hay on Wye. If you like secondhand books, youll love it. It's beyond quaint.
Back to Talybont with stop for supplies if BBQing. If rained off a curry in Brecon or food in Talybont [might be spendy though]
Talybont to Builth.
Builth to Llandindrod.
If you are going North, then you have to ride A483 to Newtown (Powys) - an amazing road with few silly speed limits and rolling twists and turns. Ill probably divert to Leominster [as going back south, toMonmouthshire] for lunch at the OK Diner[authentic roadside in the 50s yank style].
To add, so we dont lose anyone, well employ marker system and ill ask whoever is right behind me to mark junctions. The pace wont be full on, so we stay close together.
