An undulating 5.4 mile run through some really nice quiet residential roads through the "well heeled" areas of Newport, starting at the Civic Centre.

From Godfrey Rd, cross over to climb Alt-Yr-Yn Av, then to Ridgeway Av (1 mile).
Turn R to Glasllwch Cres and M4j27 left hand side (to face the traffic). Continue on LHS to pedestrian crossing & pterol station. Take High Cross Lane (2 miles at Church Close).
Turn L to Western Valley Rd, Basseleg Rd (3 miles at Western Avenue). Take pedestrian crossing at Spa, climbing hill and turning L to Melford Rd which curves left to Cae Perllan Rd.
Turn L into Stow Park Circ (4 miles) to Stow Park Cres & Stow Hill and eventually a loop around St Wooles Cathedral.
Take St Wooles Rd, turn L to St Mary St & L again (5 miles) to Clyffard Cres and R onto Caereau Rd.
Return to Civic Centre via Clytha Park Rd and Faulkner Rd.

It's flat and fast!

From the Civic Centre take Bridge St (cross by bollards at railway bridge with care!)then High St to the Old Green Crossing. Using the subway get onto Clarence Place then Caerleon Rd.

Take Caerleon Rd past shops (taking care to cros side roads)and to M4 junction (care fast traffic leaving/joining roundabout). Continue on Caerleon Rd all the way to the Ship Inn.

This is 3.3 Miles, so you can return the same route to make a 6.6 Mile total.

Alternatively, (taking care when crossing Caerleon Rd by the Ship Inn)run a circuit of the Caerleon one way system. Keep on right hand side pavement passing the Bull getting to the Angel (cross over road at mini roundabout). Continue to Hanbury Arms and back over footbridge to the Ship Inn.

This is 4.5 Miles, so (taking care to cross Caerleon Rd) retracing the outward route makes a 7.8 Mile total.
