Cycling

Cycling is becoming a more popular pastime, Wales has some of the best areas for cyclists. However experienced you are there's something for everyone. Below are some of the cycle paths around us. 

 

Lon Las Cymru is part of the National Cycle Network, and arguably is the most spectacular. It is a mix of dedicated cycle paths, quiet country lanes and disused railway lines and runs the length of Wales. It will take you to parts of Wales that are well off the beaten track where no cars can get to. 

 

The Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal is one of  a small network of canals in South Wales. For most of its 35-mile (56 km) length it runs through the Brecon Beacons National Park
 

The Taff Trail is a popular walking and cycle path that runs for 55 miles (89 km) between Cardiff Bay and Brecon in Wales. It is so named because it follows the course of the River Taff. Along much of its length, it follows National Cycle Network Route 8 (Lon Las Cymru) that continues to Holyhead, and is substantially off-road. Most of the riding is gentle and would suit the whole family, though there are steeper sections


The Celtic Trail is a spectacular cycle route which takes you from Chepstow in the east right through to Pembrokeshire in the west. You have two choices on this route. Either take the low level route or take the high level route which, although more challenging, has greater rewards. As you climb to 2000ft above sea level your views of Southern Wales will be breathtaking.
