Rambling & Cycling


There are numerous beautiful places nearby to escape from it all and get back to nature.

For any rambling groups who would like to use The Old Bwl Inn facilities to explore the area please contact us on 01443 790999. We are happy to open for teas/coffees, pub lunches or if you just want to enjoy a well-deserved pint in front of our log fire.


Monthly Family Cycle Ride- first Sunday of the month.

Starting at 11:30am and hopefully finishing by 3:00pm at the latest.

Meet: Taff Trail (just past the Trallwng Club), 11:30am
Cycle: a leisurely ride along the Taff Trail to Cilfynydd, then across the river to the Clydach Trail and up to Ynysybwl.  There is a short stretch on the road, then a shortcut past the lido to the welcoming warmth of the log fire in the Old Bwl Inn. (4.5 miles)
Refreshments: a pint or two of real ale (or squash) can be purchased, along with snacks, or for those with big appetites there is always the fabulous Sunday dinner in the lounge.
Cycle: the return trip is mostly downhill for 4.5 miles.
This event is for everyone: keen cyclists, mountain bikers, kids, men, women, boys, girls etc. but is NOT a race.  The ride is open to all and is just a way to get local people out and about, off social media, away from the TV and is a healthy activity that everyone can enjoy throughout the year.
So just turn up and join the fun!
