Wye Valley Gravel

Gravel riding is a fantastic way to see more and really soak up the scenery.  This ride is 40Km and every turn will bring a bit of history or a beautiful view.  We recommend a gravel or hardtail bike with tires at least 40mm. No specific experience is necessary just the ability to pedal 40km with a smile.

Road, bridleway, fire road, some grassy tracks

A gravel adventure takes you further and allows you to experience more of the wonders of the Wye Valley. We try to stay on paths instead of roads as much as possible, so please be comfortable on your bike on bridleways.

Meet your host

Who knew I would love a gravel ride too. On bike, in nature, with cake, all make me happy

We will meet Tintern Wireworks carpark at 9:30am to ride by 10:00.  Here will do a thorough bike check and answer questions about the ride.

This is a full day adventure taking in the historical and beautiful trails from Tintern to Chepstow and back.  We will ride through the Tidenham tunnel which is darkened to low light for the bats that make it their home. Its a fantastic experience to ride this 1km in the near dark. (Please do not bring lights as they are not permitted to be used in the tunnel).

Food options are up to you.  We will be passing through Chepstow and will stop for a drink and we will be ending in Tintern with plenty of cafe and food options. Do pack any snacks you need for a longer ride and plenty of water.

I will always have your snack back with flapjacks.
