Road Cycling

The cycling in Snowdonia is simply breathtaking. We have it all, long sweeping valleys, winding alpine style climbs, narrow isolated lanes, towering cliff top coastal roads and tranquil riverside b-roads. All you need is to know where to find these hidden gems and how to link one to the other. that's where our cycling guides come in. Our road cycling guides know the area like the back of their hand so they can make sure you get the most from your cycling holiday, they will help you make the most of the weather, seek out best scenery, tailor the ride to your group?s ability and even find the best ice cream shop. Whether you're looking for a week of energetic sightseeing on two wheels or an intense weekend of 'lung-busting' climbs, we have just the thing. Take a look and see what suits you best. As part of any of our cycling holidays you will be expected to bring your own bike which we will provide a safe and secure storage facility for. Please ensure your bike is roadworthy and well maintained. If it is not, you may be unable to take part in the ride.
