Cycle Mid Wales

Elan Valley family cycle trail

We offer a range of cycle tours, both on and off road, or can design a bike ride specifically for you. We can pick you up at your accommodation or from public transport (in South Powys) and offer you a hassle free day of exploration. Bring your own bikes or we can arrange hire bikes for you. Whether you are looking for a gentle traffic-free ride or a strenuous day out in the mountains, we can tailor the day to suit you. We will drive you to the start of the ride in our vehicle, or will meet you at the ride’s start. We can provide a packed lunch if required and all you have to do is to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Mid Wales.


Here are some of our suggested guided cycling tours but remember every ride can be designed specifically for you and every day will be different. You may notice some of our gentle rides stray across the border into Herefordshire. That’s because of our Mid Wales hills – we’ve always found the pretty villages and winding, quiet lanes of Herefordshire best suited to a nice gentle, flattish cycle ride!

Resting and refreshments is a crucial part of any day out on two wheels. Restocking energy, refreshing the lips and resting the nether regions are vital to your enjoyment. So we have tried to plan refreshment stops en route. Let us know how often you’d like to rest and whether you prefer tearooms, cafes or pubs and we’ll do our best to plan accordingly.

Extended cycle rides

We offer a support package to cyclists who would like a ride lasting more than a day. We can guide and support you, arrange your accommodation and luggage transfer. If you'd like to hire a bike, we'll sort that for you too. In short, we'll do everything BAR pushing your pedals for you! Our own recommended extended rides would include:


Lon Las Cymru (National Cycle Route 8), Cardiff - Holyhead, 5-7 days

The Radnor Ring (National cycle Route 825), 2 days

Gloucester - Glasbury (National Cycle Route 42), 3 days

Lon Cambria (National Cycle Route 81), Shrewsbury - Aberystwyth 2-3 days

Lon Teifi (National Cycle Route 82), Fishguard - Aberystwyth 3-5 days 


We can even design a route specifically for you, so get in touch if you're interested.
