Heading up to my old stomping ground of the Rhondda Valleys. This will be a challenging ride at hopefully a faster pace. There is a long gentle climb all the way up to Ferndale before the most challenging part of the ride from Bleanllechau to Llanwonno. from there its downhill to Pontypridd when we take the back lanes from Treforrest back into Radyr and home.

All main roads from Cardiff to Ferndale then narrow mountain lanes to Llanwonno before heading back on the main roads. From Ponty we will be heading back through the lumpy lanes behind Treforrest estate and then main roads through Radyr

Several options on the way. First being the pub at the top of Llanwonno or other option being the Lido in Ponty Park after the nice long descent.
