A fun 16 mile off-road run between Merthyr and Brecon; quite tough with some good hills - goes up through "the gap" between Pen Y Fan and Fan Y Big in the Brecon Beacons....

In a summer where we have celebrated the success of Team GB at the London 2012 Olympics, it is almost impossible to imagine that their glories will be so easily forgotten, especially if they are from someone’s local area. Unfortunately, this has been fate of one of Cwmbran's greatest athletes.......
Hi everybody , after last nights race a few of us had a chat about cycling. It seems there is a growing number of members getting into cycling, so we thought it would be nice to go cycling as a group/peloton. If you don't have the ability of wiggins don't panic, it will be a nice easy pace and maybe a pub stop in the middle ;-). If you are interested in coming along can you please comment on here so we can get an idea of numbers and arrange a time and date. Thank you please :-)
