Black Mountain Road - RideTo Best Rides


Tony W · June 18, 2021

Black Mountain Road, Brecon Beacons - Wales is a country with countless fantastic motorcycling roads, which makes it very hard to pick just one. But for us, the Black Mountain Road stands out. Start your ride along the A4069 at Llandovery and follow the rollercoaster of climbs, dips and twists for 15 miles until you reach Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen where you can reward yourself with lunch and some refreshments.

It's a truly beautiful stretch of road, with plenty of viewpoints along the way to stop off and take it all in. It is a challenging route and since being featured on Top Gear in 2011 it has become incredibly popular. A quick tip, keep an eye out for the sheep who regularly stray onto the road!
