Brecon Loop, part 5

The Road to Brecon
A cache by : jlik

This has not yet been found

This is the fifth part of the Brecon Loop. It starts in Build Wells.

The B4520 road takes us to the heart of Wales for a truly spectacular ride. Starting in Builth Wells, just 40 miles north of Cardiff, the road takes us south along the Brecon Road. At first the road climbs rapidly while the excitement of what’s still to come builds. After three miles of single lanes, crests and dead ground the road really starts to warm up. Long sweeping curves carry you through the open moorland terrain where you can enjoy the rhythm of the road. As you cross Llanewir Cwm and pass through Duhonw and eventually Llangynog, the road has fast sweeping bends and elevation changes, so it must be treated with great respect. As the 16 mile route progresses you’ll pass through Upper Chapel, Lower Chapel, Pwllgloyw and finally Llandefaelog Fach.

Just keep an eye out for sheep and farm vehicles. The cattle grids are a good clue that this is farming country.
