Walking and Cycling

Get ready to explore

Rhondda Cynon Taf is home to a huge range of trails and rides - perfect for walkers and cyclists. We have short walks, medium walks and epic adventures up, over and through our landscapes. Enjoy walks through history, riverside strolls, lakeside nature-spotting and more. For those who prefer two wheels, we have bike trails and tracks at Dare Valley and Barry Sidings Country Park. The Taff Trail and Cycle Network run right through the heart of our county borough and we have loads of places to stay with secure bike storage. Rhondda Cynon Taf, (which has previously hosted stages of the Tour of Britain Bike Ride don't you know!), also has the Dragon Ride up and over the Bwlch mountain every year - which, along with the Rhigos is regularly mentioned in publications as one of the best climbs for cyclists. Welsh Tour de France winner Geraint Thomas trains on both.
