Red Kite Cottages are accredited “Cycling Friendly” by Visit Wales for providing special facilities for cycling enthusiasts. Ceredigion offers an ever-expanding range of opportunities and facilities for cycling. There is a national cycle route which passes through Ffair Rhos along the B4343, and many cyclists and motorcyclists are attracted by this route. There are three designated Cycle Breaks which include: Aberareon to New Quay, Tregaron to Lampeter and the Cardigan Cycle Break. All chosen because of their special viewpoints and places of interest along the way. One of the world class Mountain Bike Wales Centres located on the A44 east of Aberystwyth in the Cambrian Mountains is located at Bwlch Nant Yr Arion Forest Centre. This provides over 35km of mountain trail bike routes offering a world class experience.
