    We are thinking of something a bit different for a ride out on Saturday. A circular trip to Carmarthen via B roads to have coffee, cake and oggle some expensive bikes in Cranc (bring your cheque book and maybe your bank manager!). Leaving Bloomfield at 10am. Approximately 53 miles and 3600ft of elevation (mostly on the way home!).

    Coffee


    Interested?

    Yep, I just did it roughly yesterday. I’ll do it properly and try and post it tonight.

    How’s this for starters? Open to suggestions. We could avoid the hills north of Whitland to Llangynin by going down the old A477 to St Clears?

    Looks good G. As you say we can lose a few hills and miles on the way out by going on the old Red Roses – Llandowror road. Or we could go south at Red Roses and join the Daffodil route to St Clears. Could also go across the pedestrian bridge to the train station in Carmarthen to avoid some traffic lights.

    Yep, I’m a bit sketchy about the route in Carmarthen I noticed today there were route 4 signs over that footbridge.

    From the footbridge you can get on to the old Pensarn Road, via a cycle path (right, just past the station). Follow Pensarn Road to where it goes under the A40, then take the first left on to Penmorfa Lane. Take the first left off this and it’ll take you straight to Cranc, avoiding the busy roads and roundabouts. Or you can turn left at the end of the cycle path and go on to old Llangunnor Road (part of this is now a path), which would be quicker. Maybe go back that way.
