As well as a wealth of beautiful cycling routes, you’ll find plenty of local hire centres where you can find everything you could possibly need to explore Anglesey, Snowdonia and the Lleyn on two wheels.
Road bikes, mountain bikes, hybrid bikes, trekkers, tandems, tag-alongs, trailers and child seats – available to hire on hourly, daily or weekly terms.
Some hire centres will even deliver and collect direct to your holiday cottage. Take a look at our recommended suppliers below for more details.
