The Elenydd is a classic audax route originally developed by audax legend, the late Dave Pountney of Kidderminster CTC who operated this very popular calendar event for 27 years It currently operates as a calendar event run by Mark Rigby at the end of April and details can be found on the AUK website.

The Elenydd or Cambrian Mountains have been called “The empty heart of Wales”. It is certainly the remotest, least populated, wildest area of Wales and southern Britain. A network of narrow, single-track roads cross this wilderness. We know the roads well and invite you to enter this sublime audax permanent route. You’ll explore the Devil’s Staircase, ‘Telephone Box Hill’ and the Mountain Road through Cwymystwyth. All in addition to the relaxing pastoral landscapes of the rural Marches and Teme Valley.
