Machynlleth to Caersws via Llanidloes and Staylittle

Fancy riding the highest on-road section of the National Cycle Network in Wales? Then this challenging route, with spectacular views of Snowdonia, is for you.

This is very much the wild section of Lôn Las Cymru and is essentially one big mountain pass.

Riding to over 500m, the highest on-road National Cycle Network section in Wales, combined with the stunning views of Snowdonia from the Wynford-Vaughn-Thomas memorial and the way the route circles the hills above Llyn Clywedog, you can experience real escapism and solitude.

The route from Llanidloes to Caersws takes you away from Lôn Las Cymru but links nicely to the rail network.
