100km in Wales is just hilly enough for AAA points but mostly you'll be looking at the scenery rather than riding over it. Highlights include the historic Ironbridge gorge,Shropshire's 'blue remembered hills', and the Wye valley in Herefordshire before crossing the Cambrian mountains via the Elan reservoirs to the coast at Aberystwyth. Easy to navigate night section back over Plynlimon on quiet A-roads.
