RCC Weekend Trip to Brecon Beacons



Peter Farnfield


The first RCC roadies weekend away is well on the way. Plans are to drive to Bwlch in the Brecon Beacons early on 15th July to arrive in time to start our ride around 10:00. A number of routes are planned and links to these are enclosed. There are a couple at 100 milers, an 88 and a 50 miler. The scenery looks stunning and weather permitting this should be a great trip.  Accommodation will be in the Star Bunkhouse. This will take 20 of us in 6 rooms. Bed linen is provided. It is self-catering but there is a cafe and pub close by that can supply us with breakfast and supper. Cost per person is around £17 to £20 per person depending on numbers that sign up. The Star has excellent reviews - see for more detail. We will ride again on Sunday and travel home at the end of the day. I've also attached a PDF file of a number of Streetview shots of the routes. You'll find this at the bottom of this post.  To view the routes please go to and search using "RHCC - Bwlch" This will bring up the four routes that I've planned. I've added a PDF file that gives you a quick view of them too. See File Attachments at the bottom of this post.
