Cycling in the Malverns

The Malverns are perfect for cyclists: the Malvern Hills themselves have a number of bridleways offering sometimes challenging but ultimately rewarding rides off road along with quiet country lanes galore offering scenic tours helping you to discover the hidden beauty of places like the Teme Valley and some fine – and largely flat – riding around the Severn plain.

The Malvern Hills and Commons are cared for by the charity Malvern Hills Trust, visit their cycling page for further information about cycling on the Malvern Hills.

Routes, Maps  and Guides

The Malvern Hills AONB have produced a leaflet called By Bike in the Foothills of the Malverns, which provides details of four different bike rides which explore the landscape, culture and heritage of the AONB. For further information about cycling in and around the Malverns visit the Malvern Trail website.
The Malvern Hills Trust has produced a free, walking and cycling map and guide for the Malvern Hills and Commons. The footpaths and bridleways that cross this iconic landscape are clearly shown to help walkers and cyclists plan their route and find their way.

The map and guide is available from the Malvern Hills Trust offices, local Tourist Information Centres, cafes, bike shops, and other visitor attractions.

Copies are also available to download on this page – please note that these files are large due to the detailed mapping within the guide.
