About Bicycle Beano Cycling Holidays
The unspoilt countryside of Wales is a cyclist's paradise with dramatic seascapes, rugged mountains, picturesque villages and lush green valleys – criss-crossed by a maze of peaceful lanes with hardly a car in sight.
Bicycle Beano organises group cycle tours, staying at a fixed location for a long weekend or a whole week. Each day we arrange a moderately-paced 35- to 40-mile cycle ride, returning to the same venue every evening. Short cuts and longer detours are available on most days, so you can choose how far you ride – anything from 30 to 60 miles depending on how you feel. everyone gets route directions and maps so you can cycle at your own pace - there's no need to chase after a "leader".
Specially designed maps and route sheets allow you to cycle at your own pace, either with a group or on your own if you prefer. We all meet up at lunchtime hostelries and afternoon tea stops; and perhaps to explore a historic site, admire a view, or go for a swim.
Each Bicycle Beano is based at a brilliant venue - for instance we've stayed at a medieval manor house, a Georgian mansion, converted barns and a comfortable eco-centre with its own lake and the best view from a bike shed ever!
Ace cooks provide delicious vegetarian cuisine. You don't have to be a vegetarian to enjoy a Beano, lots of non-veggies keep coming back because they like our food (meat and veggie meals are available at the lunch stops).
As well as our scheduled group trips, we can offer bespoke tours in Wales on dates to suit you. See our website for details.
