Hafren Forest and Llyn Clywedog

A beautiful 18 mile circular ride from Llanidloes which takes you to the Upper Severn Valley, through the Hafren Forest and alongside the large reservoir, Llyn Clywedog. There are recommended diversions to Severn Break-its-Neck waterfall, the Afon Biga picnic area and nature trail, the viewing area above the dam at Clywedog and the abandoned mine buildings at Bryntail. The cycle ride ends with a cyclists dream road, a tiny minor road which descends through natural woodland to Llanidloes. Cyclable in 2 hours but allow more time to explore the forest, waterfall, lake, dam and the old mines.
