Llwybr ceffyl: I soar y mynydd.

BELLACH gall marchogion, beicwyr a cherddwyr fwynhau nifer o lwybrau gwledig hwylus yn sgil Prosiect gan Gyngor Sir Ceredigion i Wella Llwybrau Ceffylau ar gyfer Twristiaeth, sef ‘Ceredigion ar gefn Ceffyl’, gyda chymorth Cynllun Datblygu Gwledig Cymru 2007-2013 a ariennir gan Lywodraeth Cymru a’r Undeb Ewropeaidd. Mae Prosiect Ceredigion ar Gefn Ceffyl wedi gwneud gwelliannau i rwydweithiau’r llwybrau ceffylau ledled y sir. Mae’r prosiect wedi creu deuddeg o lwybrau cylchol ac un llwybr llinol ledled y sir ar gyfer marchogion gan ddefnyddio’r rhwydwaith llwybrau ceffylau presennol a lonydd tawel.

Mae’r cyllid a roddwyd wedi gweddnewid dros 75 milltir o Lwybrau Ceffylau, Cilffyrdd Sydd ar Agor i Unrhyw Draffig a Ffyrdd Di-ddosbarth dros y tair blynedd diwethaf. Ymhlith y gwelliannau mae wyneb newydd wedi ei osod ar y llwybrau gyda cherrig lleol, mae’r gatiau wedi eu gwella, mae gatiau ceffylau wedi eu gosod yn ogystal â 225 o gliciedi sy’n addas ar gyfer ceffylau, gosodwyd arwyddion ac arwyddbyst, cafodd ffosydd eu clirio ac adnewyddwyd ceuffosydd gyda chymorth contractwyr lleol. Bu gwirfoddolwyr yn gymorth mawr i’r Prosiect a buont yn gwneud nifer o welliannau ar lawr gwlad, yn clirio llystyfiant ac yn gosod celfi llwybr.

Bu’r gwirfoddolwyr yn gweithio dros 1500 o oriau ar gyfer y prosiect a deuent o amryw o ardaloedd; mae aelodau o Gerddwyr Llambed ac Aberystwyth, Grwpiau Gwirfoddolwyr, Grŵp Llwybrau Ceffylau Ceredigion yn ogystal â nifer o unigolion eraill i gyd wedi cyfrannu at lwyddiant y prosiect. Trwy wella’r llwybrau hyn, mae’r Cyngor yn helpu diogelu’r marchogion trwy ddarparu rhwydwaith iddynt oddi ar y ffordd fawr, mae’n hybu ymarfer corff ac yn cefnogi Twristiaeth gyda Cheffylau. Mae’r prosiect wedi bod yn hwb i ddatblygiad y cyfleusterau hyn ar gyfer Twristiaeth Ceffylau h.y. Gwely a Brecwast / Stablau. Bydd y gwelliannau i’r seilwaith yn dwyn manteision ychwanegol yn eu sgil oherwydd bydd yn gwneud mynediad at gefn gwlad yn fwy hwylus i bawb.

Mae’r llwybrau newydd wedi eu cysylltu â’r llwybrau ceffylau a’r cilffyrdd presennol ac maent yn darparu rhwydwaith eang o lwybrau oddi ar y ffordd fawr. Gobeithir y bydd creu a hyrwyddo’r llwybrau newydd yn helpu hybu twristiaeth ceffylau yng Ngheredigion, ac yn denu pobl a’u ceffylau o bell i ddefnyddio llety a gwasanaethau lleol tra bônt yn ymweld â’r sir.

Ni fuasai’n bosibl creu’r llwybrau hyn heb gymorth parod Tîm Arfordir a Chefn Gwlad Cyngor Sir Ceredigion, a fu’n cynnig cefnogaeth ac arbenigedd, yn prosesu gwyriadau ac yn hybu ac yn lansio’r llwybrau trwy ddatblygu llyfrynnau am y llwybrau a thudalennau pwrpasol ar gyfer Ceffylau ar wefanwww. darganfodceredigion.co.uk. Mae’r llyfryn ‘Ceredigion ar Gefn Ceffyl’ ar gael yn y Canolfannau Croeso lleol, yn swyddfa’r Cyngor ym Mhenmorfa Aberaeron ac mae ar gael i’w lwytho i lawr o wefan darganfodceredigion.

Dywedodd Gwirfoddolwyr y Cerddwyr / Hawliau Tramwy Aberystwyth: ‘Mae wedi bod yn wych gweithio gyda Sarah Pinnell ar y Prosiect Ceredigion ar Gefn Ceffyl yn helpu gwella rhai llwybrau ceffylau a oedd wedi mynd yn angof ers tro. Buom i lefydd nad oedd yn bosibl mynd atynt o’r blaen, llawer ohonynt â golygfeydd gwych o’r wlad a’r arfordir, ac yr oedd hynny’n aml yn ddigon o ddiolch ynddo’i hun am yr holl waith called. Gobeithiwn yn awr y bydd marchogion a cherddwyr lu’n cael mwynhau’r golygfeydd ysblennydd o Geredigion sydd i’w gweld o’r llwybrau hyn ar eu newydd wedd.’

Dywedodd Busnes Twristiaeth Ceffylau: ‘Mae prosiect Ceredigion ar Gefn Ceffyl wedi gwneud gwaith cwbl ragorol. Bellach mae gan farchogion rwydwaith gwych o lwybrau ceffylau a byddant yn gallu marchogaeth am filltiroedd o ben bwy gilydd, heb orfod mynd ar y ffordd fawr rhyw lawer, sy’n beth da oherwydd mae’r ffyrdd yn mynd yn gynyddol beryglus i geffylau, boed traffig arnynt neu beidio.’ Dywedodd Llefarydd ar ran Cyngor Ceredigion:‘Mae prosiect Ceredigion ar Gefn Ceffyl wedi llwyddo i gynyddu’r cyfleoedd sydd o ran twristiaeth lle mae ceffylau yn y cwestiwn trwy weithio gyda sefydliadau ym maes twristiaeth, gwella’r hawliau tramwy cyhoeddus a chreu rhwydweithiau o lwybrau a rhoi cyhoeddusrwydd iddynt yn y llyfryn. Bydd angen gwella a datblygu llwybrau ceffylau eraill yn y sir pan fydd adnoddau ar gael.’å

The Council’s Household Waste sites have reopened. It is likely all waste services will be functioning as usual during the first half of the week.

Councillor Ray Quant MBE, the Cabinet member responsible for Technical Services said, “Council staff have been out in all conditions and every hour throughout the day and night to keep Ceredigion residents safe. The outstanding teamwork and dedication shown during the adverse weather situation is to be highly commended and I’m sure everyone is very grateful for their work. It’s also important to keep in mind that the planning work that was carried out before the weather hit Ceredigion has allowed staff to prioritise and uses resources effectively for maximum impact.”
