The Gap - Brecon Beacons

What a treat we have in store for you on Day 2. The Gap ride in the Brecon Beacons National Park is consistently voted in the top 5 of 'Must Do Big Mountain Bike Rides in the UK'! It is one of our favourites too and pretty much has everything. Starting from Talybont-un-Usk, we climb gradually with stunning views across the reservoir before crossing the moorland to take on our first rolling descent of the day. Up next is the journey to the famous mountain pass, The Gap' cuts betweeen the peaks of Fan-y-Big and Pen-y-Fan before topping out at +600m. A well earned lunch stop before the epic reveal of the glacial valley vista. Simply spectacular! All this before the descent that will leave you speechless at the bottom.

​I had been meaning to go on a Wales MTB trip for a while, but always got stuck at the planning stage... Going with Sean and Marmalade MTB, therefore, was perfect - it probably saved me hours of map staring and certainly made it a lot easier and a lot more fun. The Gap is a stunning place. The view from the top and the fantastic descent are just a few of the highlights of this trip. Totally recommend it and I'm already looking forward to repeat trip.
