Trans Wales - multi day MTB trip 

The Trans Wales mtb route from North to South is usually ridden over 6 days, and it’s a beast.

(see our blog post for info when we completed the ride)

 

So, we have created our own condensed 3 day version going from North to South Wales, with each day spent riding on some of the best natural and trail centre sections throughout Wales.

 

You will be able to experience the changing natural landscapes and terrain from the rocky rugged north to the smoother more flowing south.  

 

This is a tough but rewarding  trip which will test your stamina levels & riding ability to the max.

Big climbs, Big descents, Big views.

Prices from £140 per person for a group of 8 (see below for details).

 

Who’s it for:

Not for the faint hearted, this ride is tough over 3 days and is only suitable for experienced confident riders who are of a good physical fitness level and are comfortable riding for up to 6hrs per day in challenging technical mountainous conditions. 

Unless you can climb like a GOAT, there will be some “Hike-a-Bike” involved.

"Very much above expectation which was great. We loved the fact that everything was taken care of. What a superb trip. We all really enjoyed it and will surely be back for some more."
