The Mid Valleys Rural Village Strategy, commonly known as ‘Loops and Links’, improves access between towns and villages in the Caerphilly County Borough and the National Cycleway.

This innovative scheme allows people using the cycleway to more easily access the facilities in our towns and villages. It also opens up the spectacular countryside and tourist attractions that lie along the path of the cycleway.

The National Cycleway runs for 134 miles across South Wales. The section that runs through the Caerphilly County borough is 12 miles long and is a relatively easy flat route.

You can use this website to explore the history and countryside within the borough.

The name Risca dates back to at least the 12th Century and derives from the “yr is cae” meaning “the lower enclosure”, referring to its location at the lower end of the upland areas.
