Find Accommodation near 'Pedalabikeaway Centre Monmouth'


Pedalabikeaway has several centres including one in the attractive town of Monmouth in South East Wales close to the border with England. From here it is possible to follow the course of the River Wye for four miles along a picturesque cycle trail which is part of the Peregrine Path.

The centre which opens at weekends and during school holidays has a variety of bikes on offer including adapted cycles that are suitable for people with varying abilities and their companions. The friendly and extremely helpful staff members are on hand to assist and there is plenty of room to practice before setting out on the trail.

The Duet cycle is ideal for riders who are not able to pedal themselves. It has a supported seat at the front and a conventional bike at the rear for an able assistant.  Also available is a side by side tandem which could be ideal for riders with a sensory impairment. Both cycles are surprisingly stable and a great deal of fun.

There is a designated toilet on site with a shallow step which also doubles as a changing room for those who wish to wear cycling gear.

The first section of the trail takes you along a lane for approximately one mile however for those who would prefer the bikes can be relocated to a small car park where the traffic free section starts.

The linear route is fairly level and passes through the stunning countryside of the Wye Valley past the Biblins campsite (owned by the Forestry Commission) and on to the village of Symonds Yat in the Forest of Dean. Here there is an opportunity to have a meal in the Saracen's Head Inn by the river before returning. N.B. Booking in advance is recommended as a more accessible table can be set up in the bar area.

Our researchers also visited The Forest of Dean Pedalabikeaway Centre which is a short drive away and has several adapted cycles and weekday opening. Please note at present the start to the trail involves negotiating steep slopes and crossing a road however there are plans to provide bridged access to the trails which would greatly improve accessibility.

Non ambulant wheelchair users visiting the Forest of Dean Centre would need to be accompanied by extremely fit and able assistants to access the trails. This site does have a small cafe (stepped entrance) and a designated changing area/toilet.

For further details about both centres and pre-bookable extra opening times at Monmouth please check out their own website.
