TRIP DESCRIPTION

Shrouded in Celtic mystery, the countryside of Wales is both enchanting and perfect for cycling. There are steam trains, mining caverns and ancient castles to see, and the breathtaking moorlands combine with ocean views to make it difficult to describe without using superlatives. The inns we have chosen include Relais & Chateau members, with Michelin stars for their cuisine. The roads take you to utterly enchanting places. The Welsh people are refreshingly sincere with their hospitality, and the feeling here – again, difficult to describe – is of palpable comfort. We are excited to be able to offer you this adventure, and know you will be impressed by the combination of challenging cycling, luxury, magic, history and fun.

The adventure can be joined most conveniently by flying into Manchester airport, and taking the Heart of Wales steam train to Llangammarch Wells, where we or the hotel staff will pick you up and take you to the hotel, less than five minutes away. At the end of the adventure, there are frequent trains from Llandudno back to Manchester, but we suggest you stay for an extra night, to visit Conwy Castle, and rest before travelling.
