We will be based in Carmarthen for the weekend

Day 1

Carmarthen – East along Afon Tywi to Llandeilo –  Llangadog – Llandovery – returning via Brechfa Forest – Nantgaredig - Carmarthen. GPX File link Lower Tywi Valley – A stunning route following the route of the river from Carmarthen all the way to Llandovery with plenty of wildlife to spot. Cothi Valley – A more secluded valley with steeper sides and quieter roads. Brechfa climb – The longest continuous climb on the route, relatively gentle at 5% but almost 3 kilometres in distance making it a challenging climb.
