Summer of Fun

Summer of Fun

We are delighted to be able to offer free bike hire for 12-25 year olds this summer.

This Summer we want to see children and young people aged under 25 re-engaging with society, reconnecting with friends, and rediscovering their favourite hobbies.

The Summer of Fun initiative aims to support the social, emotional, and physical wellbeing of all children and young people. With financial investment from the Welsh Government, The Summer of Fun initiative will encourage young people to engage in social, cultural, and physical activities outside of formal learning. Free activities to support our young people and help families across Wales with the rising cost of living over the summer months.

How does it work?

If you are aged 12 – 25 you can claim one free hire (maximum time 1 day) each month for the next three month subject to availability. The scheme starts on 1st July and ends on 30th September 2022

If your age is over 25, you can claim one free hire each month if you are accompanying a child on a bike ride. (under 18).

We do not provide bikes for under 12’s, but you are welcome to bring your own.

We have one bike with a Thule Ride along child seat (suggested age 1-4) which can be used under this offer. It is located at the Pontardawe Inn.

Cycling is more enjoyable during good weather, so we suggest you don’t book far in advance if you want to ensure a nice day for your ride. We will have availability each morning. Change of dates may not be possible so please only book if you are sure you will attend.

We are open from 10am – 9pm at the Ponatradwe Inn and from 12 noon – 9pm at the New Inn. There is no limit on the length of hire but the bikes must be returned by the selected return time. 9pm is the latest return time. Once the bike is returned that hire is complete.
