Machynlleth Mountain

Machynlleth, Wales, United Kingdom

Long

The loneliness of the long distance cyclist is shown to true effect on this ride which includes one of Britain’s very few truly Alpine climbs; the 500m Machynlleth mountain (OFFICIAL Wales climb) the second highest mountain pass in Wales after the Gospel Pass. Although, the average gradient is a modest 4%, the last 4k averages at over 8%. A super fast descent off the mountain then follows.
