“The three longer routes all cross over the Black Mountain on the A4069.  This is well renown cycle route and has been used by the Tour of Britain on several occasions.  The descent down to Llangadog is probably the best cycle descent in Wales and whilst shorter than Pyrenean descents is every bit as enjoyable.”
