Cycle Steps
1. Old St Mellons through the lanes to Lisvane, then onto Thornhill, to the cemetary and up Caerphilly mountain past the Traverller's rest. As you go down the incline, there is a old barn, turn off road and follow the track. It is 4 miles of off-road good fun and quite hard if you push it. Coming out at the Myenllwydd Inn you get back onto tarmac. From there head towards Drathen then onto Machen, to Bassleg, to Tredeger House, on the old A48 through to Old St Mellons.
