At Mountain Bike Wales we don’t just take you on a day out, we take you on a journey through some of the most beautiful scenery Wales has to offer.
Mountain Bike Wales guide and tailor rides to suit your ability, from novice riders and those exploring off road trail riding for the first time, to epic multi day journeys across Wales for the seasoned rider. Based in rural mid Wales, we are ideally situated to guide you over the Cambrian Mountains, Brecon Beacons and southern Snowdonia. The Elan Valley is our backyard, and it’s large expanse of open land and excellent bridleways offers riders a true adventure at every twist and turn along the trail. The forests at Nant Yr Arian, Hafren, and Dyfi, have excellent trail heads, but the forests offer so much more if you know where to look! So don’t waste time reading maps trying to guess what ‘might’ be the best trail or epic loop, or trawling websites for accommodation looking for where ‘might’ be good to eat? Let us take all the hassle out of organising your weekend away, and guide you on your very own Wales adventure.

No sooner than Velocity was opened construction began on the next adventure.
