If you love to get out in nature, get some fresh air and your blood pumping – Shropshire is a must for your Cycling Holiday! Whether you’re a beginner or well on your way to making the Tour de France – make sure you take the opportunity to get out and explore Shropshire on two wheels.
For those cyclists looking for flat routes, Shropshire is packed with meandering rivers, canals and lakes to explore. Shropshire’s lake district near Ellesmere is perfect for families, with its flat terrain and lakeside view cycle trails, you and the family can enjoy a relaxed ride. If you’d rather a little further, why not try our river or canal routes? Take in Shrewsbury, Ironbridge and Bridgnorth on the river Severn or Ellesmere, Whitchurch and Market Drayton on the Llangollen canal.
Across Shropshire, there are trails taking in some tough hills, effortless town centre lanes and countryside pathways, and Visit Shropshire & Shropshire Council have put together some of the best to follow on a weekend or summer’s evening. Why not try the Lady Halton route which is 8.5 miles of Mostly quiet, traffic-free roads and bridleways, with short hilly sections, starting from Millenium Green in Ludlow.
Alternatively, for the more adventurous, why not try ‘The Longmynd Motivator’. A 30-mile route with some steep climbing and a steep descent off the Long Mynd to Asterton. This route takes you throughout the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, short breaks to take in the beautiful views is highly recommended!
