On the Taff Trail from Talybont on Usk to Brecon Details

The Taff Trail is an easy bike ride or ramble along the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal at this section, with the option of taking it easy with pubs at every corner. Ok, not quite but there’s more than enough refreshments on the way.

If you’re doing this on your bike then you’ll need to be aware of the low bridges that you need to dismount for, and make sure you’re steady on that bike as a slightly wobbly technique could see you in the drink rather than enjoying one!
