INSPIRATIONAL MOUNTAIN BIKE ADVENTURES

“If you’re even remotely curious about bike-packing….Tom’s weekend is a great place to start. I thoroughly recommend him” Simon Dudley, London

Introduction to bike-packing weekends in Rhayader, Mid Wales

Bike packing in the remote hills of Wales with a few fellow riders is a fantastic experience for anyone. Bike packing allows you to experience the freedom of wild camping in the hills with just you and your bike. If you’ve fancied bike-packing but don’t have the equipment, knowledge or confidence to try it alone, this is the weekend for you.

  • Wild trails in remote locations
  • Wild camp
  • All luggage and equipment provided
  • Advice and instruction on all aspects of bike packing

Is this weekend for me?:

The riding will be adventurous rather than full-on tough and technical. But we’ll cover some decent miles at a steady pace and will certainly knock up some ascents and descents. Stamina is the main thing. You need to be comfortable in the saddle for 5 hours a day minimum, with both days taking as much as 7 hours to complete. A sense of humour can be helpful when carrying a fully loaded bike over a bog or river.

No previous camping or wild sleeping experience is needed, but you need to be prepared to get stuck in and help with putting up tents and cooking. Be aware that we will be pretty isolated, and a long way from any facilities. To keep weight to a minimum, we generally sleep with 2 people to a lightweight expedition tent.

If you have any concerns about your ability or fitness or suitability, please get in touch.

Weekend price per person: £215.00
