    If you like hills the college is in the right place for you. I'd start off with a loop from Treherbert Station or thereabouts, North up Rhigos Road, then east to Aberdare, south west up Maerdy to Porth and the head back through Treorchy - about 50km.

    A longer loop would be to do the Rhigos but carry on north to Penderyn, head back on A470, west on A465 and back up the Rhigos and back to base.

    Recommended for daylight hours.
