I did a part of it a few years ago. There's some seriously steep climbs!Has anyone done this ride. Would be grateful for any advice
I'd say pretty good. Although I haven't bivied either time I did it, I always look out for likely spots and can remember seeing quite a few (don't ask me where though!). I've also ridden the roads on other times aswell. There are loads of dry stone walls which you can hide behind and wooded areas.folks got any ideas on what the freecamping possibilities might be like on this route?
(I have a very discrete tent/barely above the size of a bivibag for particularly furtive expeditions so don't need much room)
Fantastic journal. It really gave me a good idea of what to expect. Scenery looks fantastic. Plan to use my new ebike so hills no problem. many thanks.I did this ride in 2014. It took me 6 days from Holyhead to Chepstow. I stayed in B&Bs. The route is marked but I managed to miss, at least, one marker and did an unfortunate semi-circle before I realized it.
There are some steep hills and lots of pretty views (if it isn't too hazy). I liked the ride, though I don't think I would do it a second time.
If you'd like more detail and to see lots of photos, I wrote a daily journal of this ride.
