Cycling in Powys

Mid Wales forms the geographical heart of Wales, running from the Brecon Beacons National Park in the south to the foothills of Snowdonia in the north.
Its eastern boundary traces the England Wales border, and the country remains landlocked to the East, partitioned from the swells of Cardigan Bay by the rural shires of Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion.

The Cambrian Mountains form the spine of Mid Wales. These are crossed by a series of winding roads and narrow lanes that could have been purpose built for cycling, as well as an equally impressive network of off- road trails that draw mountain bikers from all over the country. The area around Mid Wales’ forests, canals and reservoirs provide a safe, traffic-free environment for family cyclists, and two National Cycle Routes cross the region - perfect for those who want to spend a few days in the saddle.


Quiet country lanes and back roads that provide gems of routes for family focussed ambles or adrenaline fuelled adventure seekers, where it’s not only the scenery that will take your breath away.

If you're not a regular cyclist, you can hire specialist and alternative bikes from hubs in prominent locations across Mid Wales.
