North Wales

Snowdonia National Park, famous for the highest mountain in Wales, Snowdon, offers world class mountain biking. Here, you will find some of the most technical riding in Wales due to the mountainous terrain, but also some excellent cross country trails with fun, rocky descents through open moorlands, hills and forests. In the north, Conwy area offers beautiful seascapes and rolling hills, whilst to the east around Capel Curig, there are rocky, and technical sections of 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 and popular with hikers and bikers alike.

The Clwydian Range

Situated in the north-east of Wales, just inside the border, is a chain of undulating hills that form an Area Of Natural Beauty running from Prestatyn Hillside in the north, to Nant y Garth pass in the south. Heatherclad hillsides and rolling farmland, littered with flowing trails, long-fast descents, offer a real mix of riding with spectacular views. Generally, there is nothing too technical, which makes this a really nice area for the novice rider, but you can certainly find fun rocky descents along the way if you want more of a challenge.

Mid & South Wales

Brecon Beacons

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 in South Wales. This national park often gets overlooked by the trail centres of Afan, Cwmcarn, Brechfa and Bike Park Wales that festoon the M4. However, 'The Gap' ride topping out at 600m between Pen-y-Fan and Fan-y-Big is the headline act amongst plenty of classic mountain biking routes on the Beacons.

Maddie, Goring-by-Sea

Awesome day today. I was a little concerned when I book, but after an hour of training, on gears and chains, together with seat adjustment, we were ready to set off. I surprised myself with what I was able to do. Although, I am not saying it was easy and at the end I got the hang of low gears and up hills. I even managed some single track. Thank you so much for such an amazing ride out, thanks Marmalade MTB, I look forward to the next trip out.
