The Taff Trail is part of the National Cycle Network (Route 8) and runs for 55 miles (89 km) between Cardiff Bay and the Brecon Beacons National Park.
Passing through the towns of Pontypridd and Merthyr Tydfil it is named because it follows the course of the River Taff. Along much of its length, it follows the National Cycle Network Route 8 (Lôn Las Cymru) that continues to Holyhead, and is mostly off-road.
Passing through a string of small towns and villages, the Taff Trail offers a healthy and low-cost way to commute to work or university on bike or foot.
Each year there are numerous charity rides that take in all or most of the trail as part of their challenges.
