Family cycle rides

by Webmaster, 19th March 2019

Whether it’s rocky cliffs, estuaries or sandy bays, the Welsh coast offers a variety of seascapes that are great to explore on two wheels

With all the gruelling cycling events that take place around Wales featuring muscle-creaking climbs up near-vertical hillsides, you may think a family bike ride in this neck of the woods is out of the question. Think again. For with all the mountains and cliff faces that greet the Irish Sea as it pounds the Welsh shoreline, there’s more than enough flat (and flattish) land to warrant a leisurely bike ride or two (or three, in this case).

ROUTE 1 – Seabirds, cliffs and a thrilling descent in Llandudno

ROUTE 2 – Follow an old railway line next to a stunning estuary in Gwynedd

ROUTE 3 – An easy ride around Swansea Bay to the village of Mumbles
