Description

https://www.strava.com/routes/2955408101793446586 This is the short version of the Dragon Ride taking in the Rhigos and Bwlch climbs. The ride is just 90k long and only 1600m of climbing (see below re optional extra...). I am planning on a 9AM start from Maesteg on the B4282 just outside the town on the corner of Heol Ty Gwyn Road (Google Maps shows parking). We'll then head West to Cwmafan and start the loop heading North to Hirwaun before taking on the Rhigos and Bwlch in short succession. Sadly there are three ways up the Bwlch and the side we are approaching from doesn't get the tick in the 100 Greatest Welsh climbs book - a descent into Price Town will be necessary for that...we can discuss that en route ... will get ride to a nice round 100k.
