Drover Cycles is an independent bike shop based in Hay on Wye in the Welsh borders. We are on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, about halfway between Brecon and Hereford, with lots of lovely riding opportunities on our doorstep!
Our address is Drover Cycles, Forest Road, Hay on Wye, HR3 5EH
Find us by public transport… Our nearest rail stations are Abergavenny and Hereford. A regular bus service connects Hay with Brecon to the West, and Hereford to the East – for route information you can download a current bus timetable. This bus doesn’t reliably accept bikes, but during the summer months the Brecon Beacons National Park is served by the Beacons Bus and several of these services can accommodate cyclists and their bikes! Visit the National Park website for travel information and a Beacons Bus timetable. Once you alight from the bus, walk through the car park to the bottom corner (where the recycling bins are) and join a footpath which leads behind the school and emerges on Forest Road. Turn left and you’ll soon see our big blue and green sign. 5 minutes tops. View Larger Map
