Each day starts and finishes in Llanbedr, we ride from the front door each day.

Day 1 will be part of our classic Black Mountains ride…choosing the best bits and riding them in a different direction. We’ve found a few new tracks to add extra off shoots too. don’t be surprised if we offer an impromptu swim.

Day 2 This is our favorite day, taking in a peak that most don’t know we can ride, we do, and we love it.

Day 3  Our final day we will discover secret places on the way to Mynydd Llangorse. We may push, or we may challenge ourselves up one of the steepest tech climbs we’ve tried.

We will play over riverbeds, maybe follow a meandering canal, see more sheep than humans, and share cake and laughter over 3 amazing days.

The guide price for 3 nights accommodation, 3 breakfasts & pack lunches, and evening meals can be taken as a group or as individuals.

We have already tried and tested the local pubs . Local cask ales, every changing plus homemade food for everyone including vegan and GF. We plan on a group booking for Saturday night if everyone is keen..

Accommodation is in a private holiday home with 5 bedrooms and 4 baths. It will be a mixture of shared 2/3 single bed rooms. This has a real Ski Chalet feel with lots of space, a drying room, and bike storage. The Glebe Barn is warm, comfortable, and a perfect place to relax after a big day of riding.

We will provide a continental type breakfast each day, including porridge, eggs, toast, and a selection of cold cereals and fruit.

Each days ride will have a packed lunch sandwich of your choice and snacks. Including homemade flapjacks and cake when you return. If you are lucky I will have sorted a portable espresso maker by then too!

Van camping or luxury accommodation may be your thing. We have a DIY option for you too The no accommodation price is £199.
