Could someone please recommend the best Route from Cardiff To Port Talbot using a Road Bike, guessing its up to Pontypridd then I get a bit confused as to the best route to take,

Hi Woggle,
Check out ridewithgps.com, it can calculate routes avoiding main roads but allows you to drag the route around to avoid hills. I just tried it entering cardiff to port talbot in the search and it calculated a direct route of thirty odd miles along the A48 (cardiff,bonvilston,cowbridge,bridgend,pyle and port talbot) and then dragged the route nearer the coast (and quieter roads) this was forty odd miles this ran (cardiff, dinas powys, barry, St. athan, llantwit major, wick, southerndown, bridgend etc.,)

Check it out and I hope this helps
