Mountain Biking Wales
Mountain Biking conjures up different ideas for many people:
For some it is Canal Towpaths, disused railway lines, Rolling Countryside & Winding lanes.
For others it is mountain biking around incredible natural riding on rugged wilderness mountain routes that are hardly used.or some of the best man made trails in the world.
For us it is just getting out on your bike, and riding whatever terrain you feel able to.
Whatever your idea is, mountain biking in Wales has it all. Based in the Brecon Beacons National Park, we have over 100km of superb natural trails that are hardly used, and we can provide the guiding and experience to enable you to have a satisfying & rewarding time.
Our Guides are qualified & MIAS approved instructors, members of the Association of British Cycle Coaches (ABCC) & fully experienced in all of the above types of mountain bike riding. They are also trained in emergency first aid skills, and in some cases ML Mountain Leaders.
If you would like to brush up on your skills, we can provide coaching, instruction & mountain bike courses to help you get to the next level.
You can either use your own bike, or if required we can arrange hire with local bike hire companies.
(Approximate costs for bike hire from a local hire company are £25 - £30 per day)
Routes can be from half a day to multi day with overnight stops in various locations.
