Carmarthenshire is soon becoming one of Wales' favourite cycling destinations, and we have a range of wonderful holiday cottages throughout Carmarthenshire countryside around Laugharne, Llandovery and Carmarthen. There are numerous cycling routes ranging from easy to very difficult- so there are opportunities for everybody. The Brechfa, Cwm Rhaeadr and Crychan forests are now renowned for mountain biking and off-road tracks. For long, challenging rides you could choose to follow any 5 of the 'Merlin' rides which were established in 2008 and will take you through your paces! If you want a relaxing, family ride you could rent bikes at Pembrey Ski Centre and set off along one of best parts of the Celtic Trail which offers coastal views and lovely beaches to stop at for a picnic. For a moderate, traffic-free scenic ride you can head to Llanelli which is the base for two long, relatively flat paths through Loughor Bridge, Kidwelly, Mynydd Mawr and Cross Hands.
