Cycling in Clun

Overview

However you enjoy cycling, the Shropshire Hills has something to suit everyone. You’ll encounter all kinds of two-wheel fans in the area, from Lycra-clad road-racers taking on every undulation that the Shropshire Hills has to offer, to off-roading mountain bikers ticking off the moorland miles or testing their skills and their nerve on downhill tracks.

There's lots of great cycling nearby, the hostel is very close to the Lands End John O’ Groats route, or, for something shorter try the Offa's Dyke trail and enjoy the unspoiled landscape at its best. Cycle past hill-forts or try cycling a village to village route past traditional pubs and houses.
