Many of the smaller roads make great cycle routes, they are often very quiet.
For 'off-road' routes there is a track from Aberaeron to Llanechaeron and a lovely Sustrans track through the Welsh Wildlife Centre connects Cilgerran (with its castle) to Cardigan along the River Teifi with the possibility of spotting otters. There are circular cycle routes for exploring scenic headlands - try St.Dogmaels > Poppit Sands > St.Dogmaels

The Pendam Trail This route combines sections of the 'Summit' and 'Syfydrin' trails to give you a taste of the fantastic riding and scenery available. Although it is the shortest route at Nant yr Arian, it includes lots of technically challenging singletrack and some hard climbs.sections, while the Syfydrin trail extends out onto the open hills.
The Syfydrin Trail is an epic ride in epic countryside. This trail takes in the entire existing Summit trail with its fantastic swooping, flowing singletrack, and adds to it by leading you out onto the high open hills with stunning views. It is a long and challenging ride in exposed and remote countryside, so go equipped for any eventuality.
