Road Bike Adventure, Self Guided Cycling Tours Mid Wales


Crys Melyn Cycling is based near Aberystwyth in West Wales. We're a family business run by myself, Scott, and my partner Anwen.

I'm originally from London, and moved to this area over a decade ago. After many years of running competitively, I found a new love of cycling in the hills of Mid Wales. As a city boy, what got me hooked were the stunning scenery, epic climbs and breathtaking descents. And the traffic-free roads, where the nearest thing to a traffic jam is a flock of sheep crossing in front of you. I've been known to compete in road races and time trials, and in recent years have been bitten by the sportive and cycle touring bug. I'll give you a warm welcome in my best Welsh (just don't ask me how you'd say "please can you adjust my rear mech?"!).

My partner Anwen was born and raised in West Wales. She left to live and study abroad, and bought her first touring bike to explore the beaches of Galicia. Now that she's back home, the same love of rolling hills and stunning coastlines still gets her out on her bike. She's a big believer in coffee and cake as a part of the cycling experience, and is the authority on the best cafe stops in the area.

Now that we've got two young kids, we spend a lot of time cycling family trails in Wales and further afield. We have come to fully appreciate the phenomenal pedalling power of chocolate, chips and ice cream!

We'd love to welcome you to Wales for your next cycling adventure.
