Wales National Velodrome
Newport is home to the Wales National Velodrome which can be used by clubs and casual users.
Newport and Cardiff cycle route
A six kilometre cycle path linking Newport and Cardiff opened in July 2015 providing a safe, continuous path for commuters.
The route is partially off road and in places uses minor public highways and rural unclassified roads.
It links directly to Tredegar House and the All Wales Coastal Path.
Available through Newport City Cycles with bikes for adults and children as well as ‘tag alongs’ and tandems.
