For keen mountain bikers the downhill Forest tracks provide wild opportunities with an excellent dedicated off-road area starting from Pedalabikeaway Cycle Centre.
Not bringing your bike with you on holiday. Don’t worry you can hire from Dean Forest Cycles, located a short walk away in Parkend or Pedalbikeaway cycle centre.
Alternatively you can have your bikes delivered to your accommodation with Wye Bikes!
We would advise all guests to take extra precautions when securing your bikes whilst onsite and in the local area and recommend the use of a five star D-lock when securing your bike. We would also recommend all bikes are registered on the national cycle database.
Thanks to the Wyedean tourism associations for letting us share their maps.
