Trail centre grade: ReD

The Brecon Challenger is designed to show you the outstanding beauty of the Brecon Beacons National park. The trip will start in the beautiful village of Talybont on Usk were we meet and greet in a local coffee shop.

From there, we head south along the Taff Trail climbing towards Trevil quarry which boasts stunning views of the Talybont Reservoir. After crossing the Darren Fawr, you will be treated to the first significant descent down to Dolygaer Outdoor centre and Pontsticill Reservoir.

After a short break, the ride will start the ascent of the world famous gap climb. This climb slowly and gently climbs up to a height of 599m above sea level. At this point, we have one of the best descents in the UK to get our teeth into descending all the way back down towards Brecon. After this descent, we jump on the towpath of the Monmouthshire canal and head back towards Talybont on Usk for tea and cake.
