Cycling in Bridges

Overview

Voted top five by the Observer and top ten by the Guardian for walkers to stay in England 2014. Shropshire and the Long Mynd are home to some of the best tracks and routes for people who are keen on bikes. If you’re a large group we can provide help with planning activities and walking/cycling routes. If you don’t know the area we can sort out guides for cycling and mountain biking. Shropshire is superb for cyclists; there are miles of trails for the cross country biker, stretching into Wales and back. There's plenty of single track for the down-hillers and endless, quiet lanes for road cycling.
