I’d heard rumours that somewhere deep in the Cambrian Mountains, accessed by only a few narrow lanes and serviced by nothing more than a scattering of cattle troughs, was a haven of singletrack and solitude: a place where you could stand atop a hill and gaze across a sea of golden grass without any of the interruptions of modern life. No roads, no buildings, no wind farms: It sounded like a place worth seeking out. In October, along with photographer Roo and Mojo-sponsored Elite cross-country racer Ben Simmons, that’s exactly what I did.

Not a hugely demanding route, but makes for a really good day out. Fab scenery and a good long singletrack bridleway along the Doethie Valley. Well worth a visit. Combine it with Cwm Rhaedr trail centre a couple of miles down the road.
