You should look into the merits of visiting Wales when conserving options for UK cycling holidays. Many climbers, walkers, canoeists, and bikers love this principality since it has a lot of outdoor activities for holiday makers. The rugged mountain scenery and beautiful coastline are perfect for these and this also means that it is ideal for your cycling holiday.
You and your family can enjoy riding your bikes along the quiet rural roads, but if you love a bigger challenge then you can take some of the trails found in the three national parks.
You can enjoy unspoiled beaches and cliff top views when you go to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Every year thousands of families spend several weekends here undertaking fun activities. Saundersfoot also provides great scenery that will make you enjoy your biking holiday even more.
The coastal town has a number of great biking routes, some of which take you through the Pembrokeshire Coast Path to the spots where you can best view the beach. You will also get to see the local wildlife, which include seals and hosts of sea birds, amongst many others.
You can also visit places like Carew and Manorbier castles, which have a rich history and can be accessed by bike. You can also go inland, Canaston Wood, for example, and take on some of the testing routes that can be found there.
There is plenty of affordable accommodation at Saundersfoot, since it is a popular seaside resort. You will get some of the best eating places in the area with country pubs where you can take a break from biking and enjoy the perfect lunch. If you need some equipment for your bike, or something to take home, you can visit the bicycle equipment store at the town.
Another Welsh destination that is perfect for biking holidays is Snowdonia National Park. This is perfect for all types of cycling due to the beautiful scenery. Whether you want an easy route that you can take with your children or you want to take a testing mountain bike route, there is always a choice to be found here.
If you want to take a biking holiday in this area, then you should start at the base town, Dolgellau. This too has good accommodation options, and also several eating outlets. You can also get supplies from several bike shops and you can also hire a bike if you do not have one. Most popular bike rides start from this base.
As is to be expected, there are steep climbs to be found on most of these routes, and you will get to see some great panoramas such as Coed-y-Brenin forest and the Cader Idris foothills.
The Mawddach Trail is one that does not have any hills, and there are traffic-free tracks on the 18 mile route. This is the perfect route for a family ride since it goes all the way down to the coastal resort of Barmouth. For those who want the ultimate challenge, taking the forest tracks of Dolgellau will give you an experience that you will never forget.
