South Wales Trip
South Wales’ legendary mountain biking offers a perfect combination: the ancient wild terrain of the Brecon Beacons and the endless fun of carefully crafted trail centre singletrack. In two days, we experience the very best of both worlds.
From its pioneering trail centres and bike-parks, ancient mountain ranges to epic national parks, Wales boasts world-class mountain biking of every ilk. Thinking of visiting for your holidays? Why not bring your mountain bike and let us build the perfect riding experience to ensure you find your epic.
Snowdonia National Park, famous for the highest mountain in Wales, Snowdon, offers big mountain adventures along with excellent cross country riding. In the north, the Conwy area offers beautiful seascapes and rolling hills, whilst to the east around Capel Curig, there are loose technical rocky trails. Coed y Brenin, the original trail centre, sits at the southern end of Snowdonia along with Cadair Idris, which is another famous mountain peak with unbeatable views.
What about Mid-Wales? We have that covered as well. The remote and stunning Doethie Valley along with the bucket-list ticking journey across the oldest mountain range in Europe on the epic ‘Trans-Cambrian Way’ and not forgetting the impressive Victorian reservoirs and dams of the Elan Valley. All this is a must for any mountain biker. Wales really has it all!
Just when you thought you were spoilt for choice with Snowdonia and Mid-Wales and we go and throw in the glacial valleys of the Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains of the South into the mix. This national park is often overlooked by the trail centres of Afan, Cwmcarn, Brechfa and Bike Park Wales. However, ‘The Gap’ ride topping out at 600m between Cribyn and Fan-y-Big is the headline act amongst plenty of classic mountain biking routes on the Beacons. Read all about this UK classic on our blog.
