Cycling in Wales
& the Welsh Borders of England

A sideways glance at cycling in Wales and the Welsh Borders - there's more to cycling than just riding a bike.

We're passionate about cycling in Wales and the Welsh Borders, having spent 33 years organising cycling holidays in what we consider to be a cyclist's paradise.

There are three fabulous national parks here - Snowdonia, Pembrokeshire Coast, and Brecon Beacons - plus famous areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty such as the Wye Valley, the Gower and Lleyn Peninsulas, South Shropshire Hills, Cheshire Plain, Forest of Dean and much more.

Wales and the Welsh Borders is full of history - romantic ruins, standing stones, moss-strewn churches, pagan wells, sulphur springs and Victorian spas to name but a few.

We hope this website will inspire you to come cycling in Wales and the Welsh Borders soon - summer or winter, it's always beautiful. This is not a guide; more a sideways glance. See you on the road.

Now let's go cycling...

Cycle Campaigning News

British Cycling has joined forces with The AA and pedestrian groups in calling for a ’universal’ rule to give way when turning in order create simpler, safer junctions for all road users. Sign the 'Turning The Corner' petition.

Note: The Welsh Borders are sometimes referred to as the Welsh Marches or the Welsh Borderlands. Technically it is either side of the England & Wales border, but for the purposes of this site it is the western portion of the counties of Cheshire, Shropshire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire in England. Cycling Wales was previously called Cycling Sideways.
