    The Elan Valley is one of the most picturesque areas of Wales. Known as the "Welsh Lake District" the area of beautiful countryside and lakes spans over 70 square miles (181 square km). The Elan Valley Trail is a popular cycle trail that leads from Rhayader around the reservoirs in the valley.

    Not sure I have heard of Elan valley being referred to as the "Welsh lake District" but nether the less it is a awesome place to ride. Bad weather can make you fill a million miles away from home and when it is wet, it is truly wet.
    I have had some awesome rides there in heat waves, rain and bright sunny minus 7° days.
