292 Cwm Castroggi

Sunday, 7th April 2019

Distance: 32 miles – Difficulty: 2/5 – Weather: Sunny

Lovely ride and great company on this ride that not only took in the Gwent flatlands, but also the foothills of Wentwood Forest. The route from Caldicot saw us ride through Rogiet, Undy and Redwick and onto Goldcliff and Nash before switching direction along the Llanwern Steelworks straight. From there it was onto the Wilcrick road to Magor and St Brides before crossing the A48 to Llanfaches, heading for Llanfair Discoed and the secret Cwm valley with its Castroggi brook. Refreshment was had at the Dewstow Gardens cafe. A special welcome to Martyn Peel, who not only came out on his first ride with us, but came to see us in concert the previous evening.

  1. Hi Martyn, hope you are keeping well. Just to let you know we have a ride from Caldicot to Mathern on Tuesday evening (18th June), to the Millers Arms for food and refreshment. It would be great if you could make it. Tony

  2. My first ride with the group and made to feel immediately welcome by Tony G and Robert . I felt safer with others in a group rather than solo cycling.
    Thoroughly enjoyed the ride on Sunday 7th April with places discovered locally. hidden valleys! and several streams of running water in our beautiful countryside.
    Dewstow gardens cafe to conclude in the sunshine.The cake was tempting but I stuck with cup of tea ..Thanks Tony
    32 miles a comfortable distance for leisure cyclist.
    Looking to build up to 100miles for the Ride London challenge in August with my daughter who I hope will; join a future 30+ ride
