Wildlife Cycling Safari

Wildlife cycling safari - Wheely Wonderful Cycling

On this three day cycling holiday you have the ideal opportunity to really see the best of Herefordshire wildlife. Cycle through idyllic country lanes to find some of the best wildlife locations. A field of orchids, butterfly meadows, rivers with otters and dippers.

Easy cycling - mainly following river valleys with the occasional short steep bit. Total 36 miles, plus a choice of day rides on day two.

Day 1. Petchfield Farm to Presteigne. 15 miles (24 km) Cycle around the edge of the glaciated Wigmore Lake and through a nature reserve. Kingfishers, dippers, herons & otters can all be found in the River Lugg. Lots of water mills, picnic places & great views. Presteigne is on the River Lugg and an ideal place to stay. In the evening, you can use our amazing bat detectors. For most wildlife you have to be patient, but you get instant results with the bat detector - there are at least four types of bat, and you can even hear them eating!

Day 2. Explore the Walton Valley. Choice of routes 15 - 24 miles (24 - 38 km). A chance to really explore this fantastic border area, nature reserves, standing stones, castles and one of Europe's oldest living trees, at a church in Discoed. Great pub at Old Radnor with outstanding view over the whole valley.

Day 3. Presteigne to Petchfield Farm. 21-24 miles (34 - 38 km). Make a short detour to visit the National Trust's Croft Castle. Croft has wildflower meadows, ponds, more than 300 veteran trees and a large colony of swallows & swifts (and a tearoom). Look out for deer as you cycle back through Mortimer Forest. Finishing any time in the afternoon, back at Petchfield Farm.
