Organised Cycling Holidays, Road Cycling Tours


Rivers run through the heart of Mid Wales, linking the mountains in the East with the rugged coastline in the West. This tour follows the picturesque river Ystwyth as it carves its way through the spectacular Cambrian mountains, before it meets with the river Rheidol and enters the sea in Aberystwyth.

The highlight of this ride is the stunning scenery, with mountain passes, river gorges and lush green pasture. This tour takes you along quiet country lanes and cycle paths, with the odd breathtaking descent. On route you will have the opportunity to learn more about the mining heritage of the Ystwyth valley, its Victorian estates, and the wildlife which is found in abundance along its banks. Aberystwyth offers the ideal place to end your ride and indulge in a post ride ice-cream on the prom.
