Gladestry, Colva, Glascwm and Llanbedr Hill
« on: March 28, 2016, 09:29:40 am »
Does anyone on here know anything about the drover's roads in the area, and the 'black lines' on the map.  Are these permissive/open access drove roads that could be ridden on an MTB, or are they private land?  I have been doing some google searching and can find out little.  There are a lot of bridleways and byways in the area for sure, but I am specifically interested in a few areas that have just the 'black dashes' rather than the 'pink dashes' of the normal. For example, grid ref SO19355.

Any info would be much appreciated about this area, planning a big 5 day off road bike and bivvy.   :thumbsup:
Does not play well with others

Probably better to ask over on Bearbones bikepacking - there are a few local riders who should be able to tell you.

THE site about Radnorshire MTBing used to be http://www.roughrides.co.uk/ but it appears to have died, so I'm thankful that the Internet Archive has come to the rescue.

Head over to http://web.archive.org/web/20161004045105/http://roughrides.co.uk/ and click on the 'Routes' link at the top and hopefully you can navigate around to some extent.

I think no.  The 1:50k key just describes them as 'path' which isn't much help.  Glascwm Hill is Access Land which in Wales means you can go anywhere on foot.  Most councils have a non-definitive copy of their Definitive Rights of Way maps online, that would tell you. Powys Council don't.

Not helping much am i?
