Q = Isn't Wales wet?
A = Yes, but it doesn't rain all the time! The very wettest places are in the mountains:- lower down, and closer to the coast, the weather is often drier. It helps to be prepared: a waterproof jacket and a flexible approach to your trip will work wonders.

Q = Isn't it hilly?
A = Not necessarily. The routes laid out by Sustrans and the Local Authorities avoid steep hills as much as possible. Otherwise, a good range of low gears will help.

Q = Don't I need to be very fit to ride in the mountains?

A = Not necessarily. Gears help... and using them correctly will make a big difference. Also, riding at your own pace and within your capabilities will help you enjoy the challenge.

Q = How do I get to a ride?
A = There is often somewhere to park close to the start of a signed route. In summer, some Snowdon Sherpa buses carry bikes. The Traws Cambria bus and Welsh Highland Railway also carry bikes. (Folding bikes can usually be carried on public transport.)

Q = Is there a good range of routes?
A = There are routes on easy terrain; that take you to mountain, coast and woodland.

Q = What provision is made for cycling?
A = Unfortunately this is very variable as in Britain generally.

Q = Are there any organised rides?
A = Yes, local groups organise rides.  We will post runs lists as we find them.

Q = Is there cyclist-friendly accommodation?
A = Yes. Campsites; B+B; Hotels; Self-catering.  There is a Wales Tourist Board initiative to encourage cyclist friendly accommodation. ...more information
