Starting point

CF23 8NL

Free parking at Costa Coffee in B&Q carpark at Cardiff Gate. I'll be there from 10.00 having a cuppa, if you want to get there early. We'll set off at 10.30.

Come and join us for a pretty ride round the lanes between Cardiff and Newport.
We cycle down towards Marshfield and then along quiet Sustrans cycle route 88 towards Tredegar House. From there we take cycle route 4 to Bassleg and then climb up towards Draethan. We stop at the Hollybush pub at Draethan for drink and snack and then continue on through the lanes back to Pontprennau.
The ride is 22 miles and has some hills, but we take it gently and slowly, (and get off if it gets too steep). The views of Caerphilly mountain and the sea are worth the climb!
The lanes are likely to be muddy, with a few pot holes in places and there is a stretch on cycle path, so best to have a hybrid bike rather than a road bike with skinny tyres.
Bring a snack and money for a drink in the Hollybush pub.

I have put the route for you to view here:
