DAY 1 - Friday 13th May
Holyhead – Llandrindod Wells – daily mileage 170 mls / 274kms
07.00hrs Check-in Irish Ferries Terminal 1 North Wall
08.05hrs Depart Dublin on Irish Ferries Ulysses
11.30hrs Arrive Holyhead
Travelling East on the A5 we cross Anglesey briefly joining the A55 at the Britannia Bridge before we re-join the A5 on the way to Betws-y-Coed and on to the Slate Caverns at LLechwedd.
LLechwedd Slate Caverns – Descend nearly 500 feet underground in Europe’s steepest mining cable railway and discover the world of the Welsh Slate Miner during the late nineteenth Century. Meet “Sion Dolgarregddu” – the ghost of a young miner, and your guide through the Deep Mine. Sion was born in 1844 and was only 12 years old when he came to work at Llechwedd, with his father and uncle, in the vast chambers you will see during the tour. Follow Sion as he leads you through winding tunnels and 10 giant breathtaking caverns each the size of a cathedral and each dug by hand. Listen to haunting music emerging from the miners underground hut or ‘caban’, – as the story of his life unfolds – and your journey leads you deeper and deeper underground.
15.00hrs Depart the Caverns and we head for the first of our iconic routes
Trawsfynydd – Bala – 17 mls / 27 kms
A popular road for magazine road tests, with spectacular scenery, a decent surface and some challenging corners – in the heart of North Wales where speeding bikes are far from popular with the local law. Don’t panic because you can still enjoy this road – just don’t go crazy. You must ride this road because it’s simply brilliant.
Dolgellau – Aberystwyth – 30 mls / 48kms
The trouble with Wales is there are too many candidates for “Best Road”. This is another one. With spectacular alpine-style passes clinging to hills and challenging complexes of bends in tree-shaded valleys, it has everything – including looks. As well as being one of the best roads in Wales, it’s also one of the most scenic.
Aberystwyth – Llandrindod – 46 mls / 75 kms
This is highway engineering as it would be if motorcyclists were in charge. A main road that thinks it’s a B road. Never mind the need to link the West Wales coast with the rest of the country – let’s have some proper corners
19.00hrs Dinner at the Hotel
DAY 2 - Saturday 14th May
Llandrindod Wells – Llandrindod Wells daily mileage 280 mls / 450 kms
09.00hrs We start the day by completing the “365” road to Landovery.the UK’s smallest City, over the Black Mountain and past Pendine Sands, the home of Britian’s speed records.
Our coastal route takes us through Llanelli, Carmarthen, Haverdfordwest, St Davids, before swinging north-west through Fishguard, Cardigan, and New Quay before swinging inland for our hotel
19.00hrs Dinner at the Hotel
DAY 3 - Sunday 15th May
Llandrindod Wells – Holyhead daily mileage 155mls / 249kms
09.00hrs Check-out and depart hotel
Llandrindod Wells – Devils Bridge & Falls via Elan Valley – 37mls / 60kms
The dams and reservoirs of the Elan Estate are situated within an area of outstanding scenic beauty. They provide a lasting amenity in their own right for visitors to enjoy. The protection of the water catchment to prevent pollution of the reservoirs has safeguarded the habitats of numerous species of flora and fauna. However, it should be remembered that the dams were built to provide for a very basic need….water for the people of Birmingham.
Devils Bridge Falls is a world famous tourist attraction 12 miles from Aberystwyth. These unique waterfalls have attracted many thousands of visitors since the 18th century, including William Wordsworth who wrote about the “Torrent at the Devil’s Bridge”. Today, the Falls Nature Trail provides a unique opportunity to see this great natural feature in the Rheidol Gorge.
Returning to Pembroke via Carmarthen.
