Tours & Highlights

  • Nant Gwrtheyrn

    Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)

    One of the best secluded climbs in Wales starting at the learners' center and climbing steeply up to the village of Llithfaen. Two very nasty bumps close to 20%, so climbing as well as sea legs will be needed for this climb.

  • Prenteg

    Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)

    Extremely hard climb, rising by an average of over 11% for over 2km. But it is worth the effort considering the wonderful views from the summit to Cnicht and beyond.
