Elan Valley Cycle Hire offers a great adventure for all the family with a range of bikes for adults and children for hire.  Cycling is a great way to explore the welsh countryside and many cyclists enjoy the unique character of the Cambrian Mountains.  This guide will help you plan your holiday.  Natural Resources Wales works in partnership with the cycling community to provide dedicated cycle tracks at many of the most popular locations. Wales as a whole now has over 1000 miles of cycling paths. Due to the relative quiet of travelling on a bike, birds and mammals are often not scared off so quickly. Cycling therefore represents an excellent way to take in the abundant wildlife on offer.  There is also a good mountain bike trail near the cottages and mountain biking in the winter can be memorable!  You might be inspired by this 3 day gravel biking adventure close to Welsh Hideaways!  There are excellent gravel tracks and bridleways to travel off-road into the heart of the Cambrian mountains.

If you are staying in Ty Mari, cycles can be stored in the Garden Room so long as the carpet mat is folded up.  For both cottages, there are secure poles in the garden areas to which bicycles can be secured so long as you bring a lock.  There is a waterproof cycle cover available in both cottages.

The Ystwyth Trail is a 20 mile route linking Aberystwyth and Tregaron.  Most of the off-road sections are suitable for families with supervised young children.  Dogs need to be on a lead.

Great to see more and more cycle routes being created.
