CYCLING

The area offers peaceful cycling along quiet country lanes and tracks. The holiday cottages are well placed for serious mountain trails nearby, Brechfa Forest,
Nant-y-Arian, Coed Trallwm and the Ystwyth trail.



ON ROAD
There is a series of long and short marked cycle trails on minor roads from Lampeter and Tregaron passing through Cwmann and Cellan (our nearest villages) - a leaflet and map is available from the Tourist Information Centre in Aberaeron, and signs can be seen at main road junctions. There is an excellent marked cycle trail the Rheidol Trail which follows the beautiful Vale of Rheidol from Aberystwyth to Devil’s Bridge.

OFF ROAD - LEVEL
The Aberaeron to Llanerchaeron trail follows the old Lampeter to Aberaeron branch railway track through the beautiful Aeron Valley from the harbour town to the interesting National Trust house and gardens. The Cors Caron trail follows the old Lampeter to Aberystwyth railway track across the famous Cors Caron “Red Bog” nature reserve. It is part of the longer Ystwyth Trail.

OFF ROAD - HILLY
Iron Age Hillforts trail is usable for off road cycling, and follows the ridge on the opposite side of the valley.
Brechfa Forest to the southwest off the Carmarthen road has been opened up to offer some great off road cycle trails through Forestry Commission land.
Nant-y-Arian near Devil’s Bridge is the premier mountain biking centre for the region, and offers several challenging trails through spectacular scenery.

"Explore some of the best road and off road cycling in Britain, and this is also a great location for exploring the Black Mountain stage of the Tour of Britain:

http://www.tourofbritain.com/_ns_race/default.asp?section=stage6_route

In 2012 it routed through Brecon but it's also been through Llandovery. Try stages of famous races eg.  http://www.wiggledragonride.com/route.php. This event takes in a lot of the best climbs and rides.

The famous Dragon Ride Black Mountains climb starts in Llandovery, which is only 20 miles away, a perfect warm up. For those of you looking for a serious challenge, why not combine the Black Mountain climb with the Devils Staircase? Use www.bikeroutetoaster.com to work out some routes and it will also give you the elevation gain, which is what cyclists want to see. eg. Black Mountain ride, 40 miles, 4000ft of elevation gain, 3hrs approx."
