Builth Wells to Glasbury

A great route through the Wye Valley that has some short, steep sections.

Running down the Wye valley, the route follows back roads, with short traffic-free sections in Builth Wells. The old Erwood rail station, now a café and museum is roughly half-way along the section and makes an ideal resting spot for refreshments - a great alternative turning point for those wanting a shorter ride.

This is a very pleasant ride along the valley floor, with only short hills (albeit some are quite steep). There are many tree-lined sections which regularly open out to give views over the river and across the valley.
