Introduction

WELCOME! I've been cycling through the Southeast Valleys of Wales since 2010 and I can't say (or show) enough about the place. I just love it. So if you've got the interest and would like to spend some time... sit back and let me show you some of the fabulous places I've discovered.

Back to Basics...

On Wednesday I rode down to Newport where I got on NCN 49. This path heads north along the Monmouth & Brecon Canal. 




I was somewhat reticent about just snapping off photos and blogging about the ride because, well... it's so darn predictable. But holy cow. The ride along the canal from Cwnbran to Brecon is everything but predictable... it's fabulous. It's magical. It's completely outside of time. So despite my previous post, here they are...

Looking left...                         ...looking right.




I'm working on getting a map together. MapMyRide doesn't include all the paths that follow the rail lines and canal tow paths here in Wales, so I'm looking into Sustrans and CycleStreets... I'll get back to ya. Cheers, cm
