The route traverses the Cambrian Mountains, starting in the scenic Elan Valley, and reaching the coast at Machynlleth. It then crosses back over the Cambrians from Talybont, via Devils Bridge, finishing back in the Elan Valley. En route you will pass 5 reservoirs, reach a maximum altitude of 509m and descend to a low point of just 6m above sea level.
This year's Trans Cambrian is going to be a very special edition of the popular Mid Wales Sportive. Featuring new routes, riders will have the option of riding purely on tarmac, or choosing one of the new X-routes. These routes are still mostly on tarmac, but include some lengthy sections of fairly non-technical off-road going. You will not encounter steep drop offs or anything technically challenging, it will be the sort of going that you can take at a steady consistent pace. Expect stone tracks, open hillside, some dirt, and a stream crossing. Be prepared for a real adventure!
