Leaving the small market town of Llandovery I head North to beyond the Village of Rhandirmwyn, I then turn off onto the first off-road section of the day. A great climb helps me gain elevation fast, dropping me out onto the forestry road that circumnavigates Llyn Brianne reservoir. Following this all the way around until I reach the stunning chapel of Soar Y Mynydd.
After the Abbey you take a sharp right and head along a couple of kms of country lane until you reach one of the most amazing bridleways your likely to ride on. Combine this with the low sun of a Winters afternoon and the solitude that Mid Wales can offer, there really is no better place.
