Velodrome events are all about tight formations and smooth high-speed curves. In Wales we like our biking with a little more bounce and a lot more scenery. It’s not how fast you can go, but how much fun you can have! And you don’t need a funny shaped helmet and lycra jumpsuit to try it.
With mountain biking trails winding through forests, down steep hillsides and across purpose-built boardwalks, Wales provides fantastic cycling breaks for people on the hunt for two-wheeled adrenaline kicks. But there’s more sedate pedalling on offer too with over 300 miles of designated cycling routes and 11 holiday hubs offering easy cycling through wonderful countryside for all the family.
So, whatever kind of cycling holiday you’re looking for, freewheel down to Wales.
On a bicycle you travel three times as fast as you can walk, and cycling burns up to 600 calories an hour.
