Maesymeillion loop 50km (31miles) 770m (2500ft) climbing
Monsoon in the morning so decided to change the time of the off to 1.30. Nice route with plenty of climbing, good descents and as always great views with no traffic. Climb the hard way out of Aberaeron past Llaethliw vineyard and up a climb 17% spike but generally ok if half fit. However do not try after a Harbourmaster Sunday lunch as I did – nearlyrecycled (not in a biking way) !
After the climb you stay on the undulating plateau which gradually rises to over a 1000ft but great views to the sea and inland hills. B roads all the way with hardly a car and good surfaces. Go through hamlets / villages of Post Bach, Maesymeillion, Pontsian, Dihewid and then a great descent back tp the A482 2 miles from Aberaeron.
