Really like this road makes a nice change from the A49 to get back to Abergavenny, a lot slower but rewarding to ride, you really feel in the back of beyond. I use this now as part of a favorite ride out, start at Abergavenny up to Builth Wells, on Newtown McDonalds for Coffee, then through Churchstoke onto Bishops Castle,Clun,Knighton & finishing off in Abergavenny a great day out riding some of the uk's best roads, Enjoy.

I use this road as part of my "run out" when taking vistors out for a ride, starting from Shrewsbury, up the Hope Valley, and then dropping down to "the Castle". In my opinion, best done N to S and then skip across Penybont Common towards Crossgates for a cuppa and a bite. Then you really have some nice choices...

A nice romp through the Shropshire Hills. Nothing too challenging, just nice sweeping bends. Tarmac is a bit rough in places, but not enough to deter from the enjoyment.
