Wheely Wonderful Cycling is based just on the border of England and Wales. Run by Kay and Chris Dartnell, from their base; Petchfield Farm. We have been organising cycling holidays for over 25 years. Wales is a fantastic place for a cycling holiday. We really enjoy cycling through this area of Mid Wales - lots of trout streams to stop by and of course breathtaking views to the Brecon Beacons, Radnorshire hills and Cader Idris on the Welsh coast. The Lon Las Cymru (Welsh National Cycle Route), is a signed cycle route through the whole of Wales.

Wonderful Cycling has won awards for its innovation in tourism, green tourism and customer service and our bike tours have even been featured on the BBC. We set the business up to encourage people to try out cycling holidays; so we offer all types of holiday from family cycling holidays, leisure cycle tours to challenging bike tours for road cyclists. Wales is a perfect destination for cycling holidays, breathtaking scenery, quiet country lanes and a great welcome from our handpicked Welsh hotels, inns and guesthouses.

All our cycling holidays are individually arranged for you; choose one of our cycling holidays, we provide you with top quality Trek hybrid bikes, great accommodation, maps and unique route guides and whilst you are cycling , we transfer your luggage to your accommodation.
