Cycling In Cardiff

Cycling can be a quick, healthy and fun way to make short trips and Cardiff’s easy gradients and large green parks make it ideal for exploring by bike. Cardiff’s cycle network is growing and it has many off-road shared pedestrian and cycle routes. There are a number of officially signed routes which lead you through the quieter side streets and off-road routes that avoid traffic altogether.

The growing number of traffic-free shared pedestrian and cycle routes include:

  • The Rhymney Trail, which runs for just over 2 miles, follows along the Rhymney River connecting the areas of Rhymney and Llanrumney in the east with Llanedyrn and Pentwyn in the west, via Rhymney Hill Gardens.

  • The Ely Trail, which links St Fagans to the International Sports Village in Cardiff Bay, where it connects to the Bay Trail.

  • The Bay Trail. Enjoy Cardiff's rich heritage and spectacular views while cycling around Cardiff Bay. The trail is 6 miles long and runs around the Bay and across to the seaside town of Penarth via Pont Y Werin, a 100-metre bridge providing a link for pedestrians and cyclists between Penarth and the International Sports Village.

  • And of course the historic Taff Trail, which runs north to south along the banks of the river Taff, linking Cardiff Bay, the city centre, Bute Park and more. The Taff Trail runs 55 miles in total ending eventually in the heart of Brecon.
