Set on the Bristol Channel coastline with the hills of the South Wales Valleys rising to the north, cycling in Cardiff and its varied surroundings could keep you occupied for a lifetime. In the heart of the capital, explore the bay on cycle paths and head to Bute Park and the River Taff with the city’s historic castle at the very south. 

Beloved cycle routes in Cardiff follow the Taff north revealing the intriguing 19th century Gothic architecture of Castle Coch. Fancy another castle? Cycle north via valleys or over hills to Caerphilly where you can not only sample the eponymous cheese but see it’s impressive, 13th century moated castle. 

Bike adventures from Cardiff can take you on multi-day jaunts through the valleys and into the undulating green mountains of the Brecon Beacons National Park, where gradual ascents give way to blissful freewheeling. To the north west of the capital, Afan Forest Park awaits, with its sweeping trails and moody forests.
