    Brecon Beacons advice Please !

    Hi All,

    Bit of a last minute plan been hatched by me and a mate to nip off for a few days to the Beacons later this week. (1150Gsa and

    nice old Africa/Twin)

    Obviously there is tons of info on this forum to read but a bit short of time to trawl through it all, so can you help us with some

    experienced advice please.

    We are camping first night on the coast near Aberystwth and then heading across via Elan Valley to the Beacons.

    Can you recommend a good route from Aberystwth to and around the Beacons taking in the best of the views. (From fast A roads to single tracks etc

    but need to keep it easy because were on big heavy bikes, fully loaded with camping gear !)

    Also any suggestions of a good Camping site to base our selves ?

    Hope to have 2/3 days exploring !!

    Any suggestions much appreciated.

    Many thanks

    https://goo.gl/maps/28NGVZXQXqC2 gets you to Talybont on Usk via one of the other Talybonts!

    No idea about campsites but there are loads in the Usk Valley between Brecon & Abergavenny. Talybont on Usk is a good base and has a choice of pubs.
    This space deliberately left blank as the author writes too much pretentious bollocks as it is.

    That link doesn't work for me Wessie.

    +1 for Talybont though. There's a campsite there and also I think the White Hart has a bunkhouse. Lovely place and right underneath the Beacons too.

    There is a cracking single track road from Machynlleth to Staylittle. It continues past LLyn Clewedog and on to LLanidloes.
