Mountain biking

Wales - 

WE ARE LOOKING FOR A GROUP TO DO A TRIAL WEEKEND

We are really excited to establish a new trip to South Wales to the world-class mountain biking region of the Afan Forest Park and Bike Park Wales.

We are looking to fill our van & trailer with up to 8 people and their bikes for a trial, cost-only weekend.

Only £200, including transport, dinner, B&B in shared twin rooms.

Departure Kent/M25 Friday morning, arrive Wales lunchtime, Friday pm ride, ride all day Saturday, ride Sunday til mid-afternoon, back in Kent/M25 Sunday eve. All levels catered for.

First come, first served. Please share with your knobbly-tyred friends.

Other weekends

We can arrange trips to suit groups, but we envisage that the most common duration will be 3-day weekends, departing early on a Friday or Saturday morning and returning late on the Sunday or Monday, such a trip would allow 3 days of riding some of the most exciting and testing mountain trails in Europe.

We propose to bring riders and their bikes up from the the South-East of the UK in our 9-seater and custom-fitted bike trailer. Our accommodation is in the wonderful Afan Lodge, which is specifically established to serve the mountain biking community who are flooding in from all over Europe.

We haven't finalised pricing yet, but we think that a 3 day weekend for 6-8 people and bikes would cost around £250, including transport of riders and bikes to/from S Wales from the SE of the UK, B&B accommodation at Afan Lodge, and support throughout including uplift to the top of the trails.

In France

The landscape around La Bucherie is criss-crossed with a dense network of farm tracks which plunge into and out of the deep, shadey valleys. There are many loops that are signposted by the park authorities. Mainly they link up with the road network before hooking off onto the next track. La Vie en Vélo has all the maps you need to make your way around this beautiful, testing landscape.

There are several green cycle routes around the area which allow long and easy cycling on old railway lines.

For road cyclists who want to take to the tracks for a day or two, we can hire mountain bikes locally.

"Ever bike? Now that's something that makes life worth living!...Oh, to just grip your handlebars and lay down to it, and go ripping and tearing through streets and road, over railroad tracks and bridges, threading crowds, avoiding collisions, at twenty miles or more an hour, and wondering all the time when you're going to smash up. Well, now, that's something! And then go home again after three hours of it...and then to think that tomorrow I can do it all over again!"
