What does this road sign mean?

Driving up a very narrow country lane, along a river valley, in the Brecon Beacons, this past weekend. I came upon this sign....
the location of the sign post does not give any clue as to why, or what, the [original] sign is supposed to warn of.. there were no bends other than general type for the lane, it did not get narrower, or any of the "usual" stuff... there seemed to be no reason for the (original) signe to be there....
Offers on the meaning please..... Cheesy

Is there a Cumberland sausage factory nearby?
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Shocked No mention of which road it is and the great oracle of all knowledge knows not only which one but that its a cycle route too.

I suspect the bit shown in the attachment below might have been a clue!
And it was OldJim not pierre!
Edit: And here you can tell where it goes: http://www.sustrans.org.uk/what-we-do/national-cycle-network/route-numbering-system/route-42
All you have to do is Google street view the entire route and you'll be able to find out exactly where the photo was taken. Tongue

Re: What does this road sign mean?

Well spotted, jelv.... never noticed that number on the pole, (even when I took the pic) ! !   Cool   the actual part of the route is the bit between Abergavenny and Hay, (bottom half) that signpost is about halfway along the bottom half of the route, and I don`t remember seeing any other signs regarding cyclists ! ! ... however... I recommend the road, if you are in the area as it crests a hill, threequarters of the way  to Hay, there is the most magnificent view....
Pic of my car "looking back" from where we came.... where the sign was
Pic inside my car... "looking forward" towards HAY.  (and panorama vista)... (sorry for the colour change but the sun was very strong... )

Hey Shutter,   
That does look like a nice view.
I don't know if you know about it,  but for creating panoramas,  you may want to consider Hugin  (http://hugin.sourceforge.net/). 
As well as photo stitching,  it  uses Enblend for seam blending and Enfuse for exposure fusion,  which results in near invisible seams.
