Cycling in the Brecon Beacons

Baddegai is well equipped for cyclists. We provide a lockable shed for your bikes and a tap for washing them down after a day out in the countryside.

You can cycle straight from Baddegai along quiet country lanes or up the old drovers road to The Storey Arms and, from there, up on to Pen y Fan. Throughout the National Park there is a real variety of terrains to cycle on so there should be something to suit all ages and abilities.

If you haven’t got or don’t want to bring your own bikes then they can be hired from Biped Cylces in Brecon – www.bipedcycles.co.uk.

Traffic Free Cycling

At the information centres you can pick up a leaflet with six traffic-free cycling routes for families.

Monmouth and Brecon Canal

The canal tow path is great place to cycle – it is flat and there are many pubs and cafes along route to stop at for refreshments.

Leisure Cycling

The information centres also have a leaflet with five calorie counted routes starting in Brecon with amazing views and picnic spots.  They range from an easy 6 mile canal side cruise to a fairly-challenging 2 day tour of the region that climbs through one of the National Parks highest and most spectacular road passes.  More information can be found at www.cyclebreakswales.com.

Mountain Biking

The National Park has 15 graded mountain bike routes from beginner to killer.  All routes are circular and start from various different ‘hubs’ with parking, loos and places to eat. More at MT Brecon Beacons
