Stage 5

Brynmawr to Aberystwyth – 109 miles

Stage 5 guides you on a tour of the Welsh Valleys around the old mining towns of Merthyr Tydfil and Aberdare, and the infamous Rhigos climb before finally allowing you to pass north into the Brecon Beacons to check out the Devil’s Elbow. If his elbow doesn’t scare you, his staircase still might as the stage shows you some of the most incredible scenery seemingly in the middle of nowhere. Before you mile-tick away the final 2 hours to Aberystwyth on the coast, you will experience the hidden treasures of the lesser-explored mid Wales.
