Rural Herefordshire is sandwiched between Shropshire, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire and the Welsh counties of Monmouthshire and Powys, making it great central point to explore the great English countryside.
There's great cycling routes to suit everyone, from scenic rides alongside the rivers Wye, Lugg and Arrow, to the hilly road cycling ascents of the Golden Valley, Black Mountains’, Markle Ridge and the popular Malvern Hills.
With so many quiet, scenic back-roads it's ideal for road cyclists, although potholes aplenty. Be sure to spot Herefordshire's famous Oast houses, alongside traditional timber-framed cottages and rolling countryside around every corner.
For those on a MTB, there's great cycling trails in Mortimer Forest, Wigmore Rolls, Symonds Yat (family friendly) and Wapley Hill.
Below you'll find personally recommended cycling cafes and coffee stops within Herefordshire, along with our very own cycle routes, including GPX files for those looking to visit the area and explore by bike.
Each cafe has been meticulously reviewed and visited to ensure you know everything from how good the coffee and cake selection is, how easy it is to store your bike, affordability and whether it's suitable for cycling groups.
