    Lady Margarets Park to Pembry Country Park.
    27ft fifth wheel.
    which is the better (easier-flater, less twisty) route please?
    The section which concerns us is down from Newtown to Buith Wells.
    A 483
    or
    A489 & A470.

    mmm, if you take either route you are bound to have bends in any Welsh road, if it was me i would take the direct route, remember that they are both good roads, buses trucks etc use them, sorry doesnt seem to help, but no one easy route, i dont think:)

    It's farm country, they take lorries and even the odd bus down the A483. If I remember the road correctly, it's only the 'top half mile' is the worse bit.

    Due to the ViaMichelin site showing the section of A483 in question as being full of bend warnings, we ended up doing A489 then A470. What a beautiful route. Stunning scenery, light traffic and even in the odd twisty section or two, it tended to be more sweeping bends where 40 to 45 mph was perfectly safe. A lovely route that I would definitely do again.
    Now safely ensconced on Pembry Country Park C.C site enjoying the first glass of nectar whilst planning lots of cycling on all the tracks round here. :) Hic:D

    Enjoy the area, if you are on the cycle track towards Llanelli I can recommend a break in the Pavilion Cafe in Pwll, on the cricket ground. (y)
