Join Will on a 75km circuit around the Brecon Beacons. The route goes north from Penpont in a large loop towards Llanwrtyd Wells, keeping to mostly small mountain roads. The views should be great and we will hopefully find a pub or cafe for cake and or lunch.
Will, your leader is part of the Penpont camping weekend, but this day event is open to all experienced road cyclists.

What to bring
Bike: a road bike
Helmet: OutdoorLads requires you to wear one (and so do I)
Clothing: lightweight and layered, colourful and/or reflective clothing will make you more visible to other road users
Footwear: suitable for your bike and pedals
Gloves: cycle gloves help avoid blisters, and are good in the cold
Punctures: spare inner tube, bike tyre pump and tyre levers

Small snacks: such as chocolate or energy bars
Plenty of water: in bottle/s on your bike or in a daysack/bladder

Eye protection: avoid getting grit or insects in your eyes, sunglasses are OK if they are not made of glass and not too shaded

Storage: small day-sack or a bag on your bike
Mobile Phone: keep it in a waterproof bag for use in emergencies
Food & drink
Please bring plenty of snacks, the plan is to go to a cafe/pub but I cannot guarantee a convenient pub will show itself at lunchtime, they have a nasty habit of closing down.
