Route Description

This is very much the wild section of Lon 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 Lon Las Cymru, but links nicely to the rail network.

Disgrifiad o’r Llwybr

Dyma’n sicr adran wyllt Lôn Las Cymru, ac un bwlch mynydd mawr ydyw yn y bôn.

Gan feicio dros 500m uwchlaw lefel y môr, adran ar y ffordd uchaf y Rhwydwaith Beicio Cenedlaethol yng Nghymru, ynghyd â’r golygfeydd trawiadol o Eryri a geir o gofeb Wynford Vaughan-Thomas a’r modd y mae’r daith yn cylchu’r bryniau uwchlaw Llyn Clywedog, gallwch brofi dihangfa ac unigedd gwirioneddol.

Mae’r daith o Lanidloes i Gaersws yn mynd â chi oddi ar Lôn Las Cymru, ond mae’n cysylltu’n daclus gyda’r rhwydwaith rheilffyrdd.
