Wales End to End

Wales End to End

£795 per person

In these times of uncertainty we are looking to offer more trips within the UK so welcome to our new trip in Wales. The End to End is a 5 night 4 day road cycling trip covering approx. 220 miles, starting in Chepstow then taking in Brecon, Llanidloes and Barmouth before reaching Holyhead.

While not as well known as Lands  End to John o’Groats this trip is one of the best ways to explore the variety and beauty of Wales.

On our trips, wherever possible we utilise country lanes and national cycle network paths, and try to avoid main roads. We ride at a pace that is well within the reach of a fit and competent cyclist. We start each day at around 8.45am with a morning briefing where the tour leader will explain the day’s route and the traffic and weather conditions that you are likely to encounter. You will also be briefed on the place where we will be having our lunch stop, we usually provide a healthy picnic/sandwiches or if the weather is inclement we will make use of one of the many cafes and pubs that lie along the route.

The support van will be on hand assisting with the day to day running of the tour and towards the end of each day transporting your luggage to your accommodation. Wherever possible during the course of each day we stop the van in a safe place and offer hot drinks and snacks. We can arrange to get your bike shipped home at the end of the tour for a small extra fee.

Accommodation

Your accommodation, on a twin share bed and breakfast basis, will be in hotels, typically Premier Inns or Holiday Inns.

Single accommodation is available for a supplement of £145.

Meals

A packed lunch will be provided.

You will need to purchase your own evening meals, which are usually eaten communally, although you are free to opt out if you wish.
