Give the car a holiday!

For many visitors to the county part of the appeal is to park up, leave the car and head off to explore.

Others may depend on 4 wheels to get from A to B and there are drives a plenty to enjoy lovely scenery.

But deep down we are a green county and so we encourage those who can to enjoy our great outdoors whether on foot, on a bike or even a canoe.

Below is a little information to help you in your planning and don’t forget your accommodation provider may well have top tips to share too.

 

Cycling

Herefordshire is a great place to get out and about on a bike, with so many small rural lanes, with low traffic levels the county is perfect for cyclists. In the city of Hereford there is a network of Cycle Paths.

Beryl Bikes

Beryl Bikes have arrived in Hereford! It is now easier to travel around Hereford by bicycle, thanks to the introduction of an easy to use bike share scheme in the city.  The scheme has 150 Beryl Bikes available from 40 Beryl Bays, which are the distinctive green marked bays located around the city.
