Drover Cycles, Hay on Wye – Shop, Hire and Bike Service Centre
We’re on Forest Road in the world renowned book-town of Hay on Wye, right on the border between Wales and England in the foothills of the Black Mountains. From our doorstep you can climb into the hills and over Gospel Pass on Wales’ highest tarmac road. Stunning scenery and a must for road cyclists! If you prefer off road adventures there are mountain biking opportunities aplenty. Natural trails criss-cross the local hills and you’re pretty much guaranteed peace and quiet here in the Brecon Beacons National Park. We’re also close (an hour or two in the car) from some legendary Wales trail centres: Cwmcarn, Afan and Bike Park Wales being the closest. We’re also big fans of touring and commuting by bike and family-friendly cycling, so we have bikes to suit a wide range of riding styles and budgets!
Bike hire is available in Brecon, Abergavenny, Hereford, Builth Wells, Talybont on Usk, Crickhowell to name a few – click here for more information and to book.
