Wind through Wales

Get away from the coast and en­joy in­land loop

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Wales seems to breed great roads and this loop around New­town is an­other ex­am­ple of the su­perb stretches of tar­mac that at­tract bik­ers from all over the UK and be­yond.

Start­ing at New­town, the A483 is a fast but twisty A-road that cuts down to Llan­drindod Wells, un­du­lat­ing as it climbs and falls through this hilly re­gion. It’s a great road and one that sees many riders flock to en­joy its curves on a sunny week­end. Turn­ing right just be­fore Llan­drindod, the A44 takes you across to Rhayader and is fast and chal­leng­ing.

This stretch of road, as well as the run out of Rhayader on the A470, is a pop­u­lar spot for police pa­trols so keep an eye on your speed. Af­ter leav­ing Rhayader the A470 fol­lows the path of the river Wye for a few miles and onto Llan­gurig and Llanid­loes be­fore the A489 re­turns you to your start­ing point at New­town.
