Cardigan Bay Cycle Maps & Routes

Cycling WalesThe lanes around Cardigan Bay are numerous and often very quiet. Many of the smaller roads make great cycle routes.

For 'off-road' routes there is a track from Aberaeron to Llanechaeron and a lovely Sustrans track through the Welsh Wildlife Centre connects Cigeran with its castle to Cardigan along the River Teifi with the possibility of spotting otters.

You can hire bikes [and have them delivered to your holiday accommodation!] in Borth, Clarach, Aberystwyth and Machynlleth, by Cycloan Bike Hire

In Cardigan bikes can be hired at New Image Bikes
