The Trans Cambrian Way?

The Trans Cambrian Way is a long distance mountain bike route spanning the width of Wales from Knighton to Dovey Junction on the west coast. The route is approximately 100 miles long and crosses through some very remote countryside. Originally devised and mapped by IMBA, it was intended to be a 3 day ride. There are plenty of riders who will find a 3 day crossing a satisfying challenge ... then there are the 'others'!

What to expect?

So you're thinking about riding the Trans Cambrian Way as an ITT. You've seen the stuff on the internet about people riding it over 2, 3 or even more days. Many of them stayed in B&B, perhaps they had leisurely lunch stops and their longest day was probably around 40 miles, your experience is going to be a little different ... here's a bit of what you can expect.

Plenty of slightly overgrown double track

Trails tough enough to damage your bike!

Lots of heather ...

and the odd tricky bit!
