Cycling the 'Gap'

BikePark Wales with its many mountain biking trails is just a short traffic free cycle away or 10 minutes by car. There are also mountain bike trails within the Brecon Beacons National Park including the Gap, a red grade 30+km ride.

We're roughly halfway along the Taff Trail, a 55 mile trail running from Cardiff to Brecon and vice versa. Explore it on two wheels or on foot.

Walk in the Brecon Beacons National Park and find waterfalls, wooded gorges and wide open spaces. Take on the high peaks, Pen y Fan, Corn Du and Cribyn and visit spectacular Henrhyd, the highest waterfall in South Wales. There are legendary walks in the Valleys too.

For rock climbing and abseiling, the Summit Centre is close by and there’s also some ‘quality rock’ in the Beacons.

If it’s big smoke you’re after, the Welsh capital, Cardiff, is a 35min drive away.
