Our cycling holiday is Wales covers three of the country's National Parks: the Brecon Beacons, Snowdonia, and the Pembrokeshire Coast. There's also a chance to explore the Ceredigion Coast, and the valleys of the Wye, Yswyth, Teifi and Mawddach rivers. Wales is also a place of fascinating culture and heritage, and some key places of interest feature en route: the National Woollen Museum, Dylan Thomas' writing shed, the Italianate village of Portmeirion, Llechwedd Slate Caverns, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Caernarfon Castle, and the town which is home to the world famous literary festival: Hay-on-Wye.
Designed very much with the leisure cyclist in mind, this tour has van support and a driver-guide, offering flexibility and the chance to start the cycle rides at altitude so they run downhill, rather than vice versa! Much of the route is also traffic-free, using old railway lines. The gradients (where not downhill) are gentle, and the mileages are low.
