Riverside Explorer - Self Guided

Crys Melyn are partners of Cambria Tours Ltd.

Rivers run through the heart of Mid Wales, linking the mountains in the East with the rugged coastline in the West. This tour follows the course of two of these beautiful watercourses. A circular route takes in the source and upper reaches of the River Teifi, whilst a second navigates the River Ystwyth from its source to the coastal town of Aberystwyth.

The highlight of these rides is the stunning scenery, with mountain passes, river gorges and lush green pasture. This leisurely tour takes you along quiet country lanes and cycle paths to the bustling towns of Lampeter and Aberystwyth where there are plenty of cafés to choose from. Our back-up vehicle will provide snacks, drinks and mechanical support on the road. 

Your base for this tour is the market town of Tregaron at the foot of the Cambrian Mountains. You’ll be staying in a cosy, country inn renowned for its friendly welcome. You can look forward to excellent locally-sourced food, a bustling bar to relax in before and after your rides, and a comfortable bed for a good night's sleep.
