rhandirmwyn to breconOn the fourth leg of your holiday, you will travel south east from Rhandirmwyn to Brecon, leaving Carmarthenshire and entering the second national park of this trip – the Brecon Beacons National Park.

This leg of the tour is approximately 33 miles long and takes around 4 hours and 30 minutes to complete. The pretty Welsh villages en route are really worth exploring, and there are a number of pubs and cafes that you could stop at for food as you pass through.

This leg of the holiday takes you into the stunning landscape of the Brecon Beacons National Park. This mountainous region has a rich history and is dotted with ancient standing stones, Iron Age hillforts, Norman Castles and Roman Roads. In fact, on this route you will cycle in the footsteps of the ancient Romans as you ascend into the mountains just outside Llandovery town. Keep a sharp eye on the landscape for signs of Roman camps and forts, plus a Neolithic stone circle or two.
