Route 825 is almost a circular cycle route around the old county of Radnorshire. The route follows a mixture of country lanes, river valleys, traffic-free trails and mountain roads, offering spectacular views of some of Mid Wales' most spectacular scenery. Starting at Rhayader, the route predominantly runs through Powys but in the East, the route creeps back and forth over the Welsh English border into Herefordshire passing through Kington, Presteigne and Knighton. At Llandrindod Wells, the route carries on to Newbridge on Wye where it connects with Route 8, taking you north back to Rhayader or south to Builth Wells.
