Route Itinerary
This plan covers four days and three nights - divided into fairly equal distances for each day. As well as trying to make the trip as scenic as possible, I also try to focus the routes around traffic-free paths or quiet roads designated by the National Cycle Network.

The first two days we'll be following quiet roads and NCN 423 north through Monmouth to Symonds Yat and then west on quiet roads across to Preston-on-Wye. The last two days we'll return using quiet roads to Crickhowell and then onto the lovely NCN 49 - ambling back along the Monmouth & Brecon Canal for the remainder of the ride to our start in Pontypool.
