Starting point

CF14 7JJ

Starting from the car park at Forest Farm we will head up the Taff trail, along the River Taff, through Tongwynlais to Caerphilly Castle. There is a long, steady (not steep) hill from Taffs Well Train Station for about a mile or so up to Penrhos Cutting. Lots of downhill on the return leg though ! We are returning via the lower Taff Trail passing Nantgarw Pottery works and Taffs Well Rugby Club . If time allows we will have a cafe stop at Tongwynlais. The route is primarily traffic free although there are short on road sections which we will keep to a minimum . This is our annual Christmas Ride so your chance to ride in fancy dress!
