Roadstead

Throughout the year, we get a lot of requests via the Tour of Pembrokeshire website to see whether we can provide cycling routes and advice on good places to stay or eat.

We’ve produced routes for clubs, organisations, groups of friends and even a business man who flew in with his guests by helicopter.

Indeed when the organisers of the Tour of Britain arranged The Great Tour in 2015, we were asked to produce seven of the stages, from Weston-Super-Mare to Aberystwyth.

During 2017, Channel 5 produced a programme entitled Britain By Bike and we were invited to join George Lamb for a day’s cycling around a route that we designed to showcase The Tour of Pembrokeshire.  The first episode will be screened on Friday 29th September at 20:00hrs.

All this set us thinking and we decided to combine our experience of planning good cycle routes with our knowledge of the providers of quality food and accommodation and create Tour of Pembrokeshire Roadsteads; reliable destinations for cyclists.  We’ve got to know some great businesses over the years and Roadsteads are fine examples.

Here’s what one visitor said about Roadstead

I just wanted to say a great thank you for today.

I was cycling a route I’d found on your website when I had a blow out and my tyre torn off the rim at Aber Mawr.  After I’d fixed the flattie I was left with an inner tube bulge from a split in the tyre that was dangerous.  With no mobile signal I did a short walk to Tregwynt Woollen Mill in the hope of finding a phone and a cuppa.  I was surprised to find that they had a stock of cycling essentials as this was one of your excellent TOP Roadsteads.  It saved the day, the last thing I was expecting was to find a new tyre but thanks to your facility and your kind help I got back on the road.

I think it is fabulous that you are linking up with stop off points on routes and providing this facility, a real synergy, they did me a great sandwich and let me use their phone.  I am looking forward to having another crack at the full round and as my fitness improves will maybe enter the Tour of Pembrokeshire, as it is a fantastic route with glorious scenery.

Thanks again for the help and the personal touch, wishing you and the ToP every success.

Best regards, Ian
