Cycling in Monmouthshire

Cycling is a Monmouthshire passion. We have two of the long-distance routes on the National Cycle Network starting here in Chepstow: the Celtic Trail (220 miles traversing the southern edge of Wales heading west across the Newport Transporter Bridge), and Lon Las Cymru (185 miles heading north through the Brecon Beacons to Snowdonia).

We're also home to the prestigious Abergavenny Festival of Cycling, which includes on its programme family rides as well as events which provide the opportunity to watch the professional riders make it look easy, and each year sees the annual Velothon giving all a chance to ride the route of champions.

For riders who just want to get out on the road, Monmouthshire is the home of ‘The Tumble’ - a legendary 6 km 10% gradient climb (listed as one of the 100 greatest cycling climbs in Britain), and a host of cycle friendly cafes and accommodation.
