We rented a couple of hybrid bikes from Wheely Wonderful for a day of cycling around the countryside surrounding Ludlow. Chris was very helpful and sized our bikes for us. As well, he suggested a 50km route with not to much traffic and provided us with a map of the area. We had an amazing day cycling and even had... More

This was advertised as the quietest cycle tour under the sun and when the sun shone it was amazing! The whole route was meticulously planned with a great deal of thought and professionalism which made the whole ride so enjoyable with truly wonderful traffic free roads. The views of the Shropshire countryside were stunning and there was always a recommended... More

Booked at the last minute and wanted to arrive and spend one night in Ludlow, cycle to Clun, stay a night and cycle back to Ludlow and stay another night which was slightly different from the set holiday, but Kay sorted it all out in a very friendly and professional manner. Paperwork, maps, direction, service and bikes all excellent.

A really interesting and varied walk through stunning countryside with wonderful views. Some tough bits due to bracken growth, but very manageable. Overnight stays were good with some memorable food. Ludlow itself very captivating. Excellent organisation and support from Chris and Kay at Wheely Wonderful Cycling Holidays.

WWCH researched the available/open gardens and adapted their recommended routes to suit. Result - a very good holiday. In fact they now market this holiday for others. Routes were as expected - minor back lanes with minimal or zero traffic. None... More
