    Hi, there is the Tumble mountain which featured in last years National Championships at Abergavenny. It runs from Lllanfoist near Abergavenny up the Blorenge mountain
    to Blaenavon. It also features regulary in the Abergavenny Iron Mountain Sportive.
    Not sure if this is the one you saw, it's not in the Beacons but it's not far away.

    There is no Tumble mountain the Tumble is a area of the Blorenge. well named as well.

    which is within the Breacon beacons, I was born close by, it's a fairly boring climb as your in the woods till 2/3rd up.

    It`s the B4246, Govilon up onto Blorenge, just on 3 miles and 1200ft climbing; personally not boring but a long and steady climb!
    Well done indeed I thought to ??name Country File presenter, you`re no average cyclist to get up that! :)
