Shropshire - Rivers, Castles and World Heritage Site Ironbridge Gorge. It’s officially designated an “area of Outstanding Natural Beauty”.

Ancient market towns, Norman Castles, Iron age hill forts, a UNESCO world heritage site, heather moorland, vibrant culture and lots of sheep farming. No wonder the poet AE Housman chose The Shropshire Lad for his epic poem of rural life “In valleys of springs and rivers, By Onny and Teme and Clun, The country for easy livers, The quietest under the sun”
Herefordshire - Black & White villages and the Wye Valley Half-timbered “Black and White” architecture, with wonky beams and lots of charm, make this area a photographers delight, on your cycling holiday. Every one of these medieval villages come with a village pub, teashop & grand church and are surrounded by the fruitful farms, that made this area prosperous. Cider orchards & cider production, hops for local beer, fruit farms and “Lemster Ore” (special breed of sheep), Grand houses and beautiful gardens can all be seen as you cycle through the water meadows of the local rivers,the Lugg, Arrow and Wye
Wales - Offa’s Dyke, Lon Las Cymru and the Brecon Beacons National Park. The further west you go ...the wilder it gets! Follow the River Teme to its source, taking you into the Welsh mountains the easy way. Fantastic views across to Cadair Idris & Snowdonia, and wonderful routes to the Brecon Beacons and Elan Valley lakes. As soon as you cross into Wales from England you are immersed in Celtic Welsh culture; its language, legends, music, battles and persistent desire to get the better of the English invaders.
