Wake up and ready yourself for the adventure that lies ahead. Depart at your leisure any time after 8.00am. Leave your tent with our friendly staff – Bagman’s got you covered!

Today’s route starts with a few kms of tarmac before going off piste up the mighty Goytre Hill. You may find this first ramp arduous and a bit of pushing required but fear not; the views from the top are well worth the effort and the remaining parcours becomes less punishing. Enjoy the quiet lanes and long gravel sections as the Trans Cambrian Way threads through the beautiful welsh countryside on the route less travelled. Take time to rest and refuel at Rhayader before traversing the stunning Elan Valley with its Victorian reservoirs.

And if you have any energy left use it! Our food concessions, live music and bar should keep you occupied throughout the evening at the amazing Pafiliwn Bont, Pontrhydfendigaid.

Sunday 30th July 2023

Another day of glorious scenery as we loop north and east back to Knighton. Rest up at one of the myriad view points to enjoy our feed stations in the great outdoors.

The final stretches trace Offa’s Dyke back south along the English border before the final descent into Knighton. Fancy a dip in the river?
