PROPER BIG RIDES
You’ll need good weather and maximum daylight time for these monster multi-day rides

SARN HELEN 370km (230 miles)

Add Sarn Helen to the list of things the Romans did for us. This 370km route pieces together stretches of ancient roads and wends its way the entire length of Wales, starting in Conwy in the north and finishing on the tip of the Gower Peninsula in the south. From the rugged mountains of Snowdonia, through the quiet Cambrians and over the wild Brecon Beacons, the route gives a real insight into the sheer breadth of great riding across Wales. This is the perfect way of sampling some of the country’s more natural delights along with getting a real feel for its history. Plan for six days of solid riding, or more if you’re not in a rush.
