Cycling routes


Cycling is a fun and enjoyable way to stay physically active. In Rhondda Cynon Taf we are fortunate to have a wide range of trails and paths, that form part of the national cycle network. Sections of some trails are on the road, but many of them are off road and traffic free. There are plenty of off road, tarmac paths perfect for family bike rides. There are also plenty of more challenging rides for confident cyclists which include on-road sections, gravel paths and steep climbs. Below are route videos and maps, which will help to familiarise you with the route and hopefully encourage you to try it.
