Cycling

We think we have got some of the best road and mountain biking in the world - great roads and tracks and views and hills to take your breath away. You can cycle the whole way across the Brecon Beacons on our new cycle route - 56 miles of way marked paths and minor roads. Download the Cycle Across the Brecon Beacons Map now. If you're looking for a family day out, the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal is perfect for a relaxed cycle, or try the miles of quiet routes in the glorious Crychan Forest.

Many of our cottages have the accredited Cyclists Welcome Award which means they have made a safe area for bike storage, washing and maintenance, and provide information about the many routes available across the Brecon Beacons, The Black Mountains and the Black Mountain.
