SPOTLIGHT ON...THE CAMBRIAN MOUNTAINS

We're very lucky to have the Cambrian Mountains on our doorstep, one of the remotest, least populated and wildest areas of Wales. Nestled between the better-known national parks of Snowdonia to the north, and Pembrokeshire to the south, this is an undiscovered natural wilderness that offers spectacular cycling.

Spanning the three counties of Ceredigion, Powys and Carmarthenshire, the Cambrian Mountains define the landscape of mid Wales. Here, you'll find unspoilt plateaux, lakes, valleys, waterfalls and gorges. The highest point is Pumlumon Fawr at 752m, and the rivers Severn, Wye, Elan, Irfon, Tywi, Cothi, Teifi, Ystwyth, Rheidol, and Twymyn all have their sources here. There's very little traffic on the largely single-tracked lanes that traverse these highlands. This is a place to come to escape from the business of everyday life, and to contemplate the rugged vistas in wonderful solitude.

So it's hardly surprising that many of our cycling routes explore these incredible mountains. From bases in Tregaron, Devil's Bridge or Lampeter, our rides showcase the best that this spectacular landscape has to offer.
