This cycle route takes in fantastic views on the Aberystwyth to Devil’s Bridge road before dropping down into the beautiful Rheidol Valley. Starting at the harbour in Aberystwyth, this 17 mile (27 km) waymarked trail leads you through the Rheidol Valley to Devil's Bridge, mainly along quiet lanes and dedicated cycle routes. The trail is shown on local Ordnance Survey maps, and signposted from the harbour in Aberystwyth.

Although unchallenging for most of its distance, there is a very steep climb up from the valley floor to Devil's Bridge, so be prepared - or take the alternative ending to the route which leads to the old Rheidol mines.

It is possible to take your bike on the scenic Rhiedol Steam Railway to Devils Bridge and a visit to the Devil's Bridge Falls is a must, before you ride back down the valley to Aberystwyth.
