Easy spin with fast east descent into llandovery. take the back road to Llangadog along the valley. start climb over black mountain 8.5 miles, easy until the cattle grid thenhard to top. Descent 4 m into Brynamman and role along to Ammanford, look for Bettws and Scotch Pine hard 2m climb with horrible cattle grid near top just when you are doing 4mph is scrubs the speed off.
