Find Accommodation near 'Drovers Cycles - Cycling'


Drovers Cycles are based in Hay-on-Wye and offer visitors a wide range of cycling merchandise and cycle hire. For people with easier access needs they have two 3-wheeled cycles available, a side by side tandem tricycle (image 3) and a hand cycle (left hand side in image 2)

Cycle hire sessions normally last for a half or whole day however for new users of the adapted cycles, shorter sessions are now available.

The immediate area around Drovers is level however cyclists soon reach Hay-on-Wye which has very steep inclines and our researchers found this too challenging for novice cyclers.  Therefore on prior request the staff at Drovers are now happy to relocate the adapted cycles to a more level off-road trail alongside the river see images 6. 7 and 8). This trail, whilst not particularly long, does offer the chance to become used to the cycles without steep gradients and traffic.

For the hand cycle you will need good upper body strength and on both hand cycle and the tandem you will need the ability to transfer and good balance. For anyone attempting the longer road cycling you will need excellent physical stamina as well.

Our researchers would strongly advise first time cyclists to try the off road option first.
