Trail Riding in Mid Wales

Motorcycle trail riding utilises the network of old roads which never received a tarmac surface. They can be grassy and muddy, gravelly and watery, rocky and very steep – anything a lightweight motorcycle can tackle. We are in the Cambrian Mountains near Machynlleth: an area which is remote and unspoilt. Our days cover between 70 and 120 miles, and include tarmac roads so you need a motorcycle licence.

Ladies Introduction to Trail Riding on Good Friday, Easter Saturday and Easter Monday. For more information, please see Events.

"Thanks for a brilliant day on Saturday. The bikes were so capable and well maintained, Colin a great teacher and Lucie and Colin good gatemen. The scenery was spectacular and the trail riding challenging and rewarding. Nothing could improve on the day whatsoever!"
David and Paul Fisher

Trail riding with a hire bike

We provide Honda CRF250Ls and a Yamaha WR250R which are road legal motorcycles with offroad capability. Some of the green lanes we ride look more like footpaths with overhanging trees and a grassy surface, whereas others are extremely rough and rocky. Trail riding is a challenge, an achievement, a load of fun, and takes you to the most scenic areas of Wales!

Until the end of February, we are offering compact days with reduced road work. Price £140 for one day or £220 for two days, starting at 11am and finishing at 3.30pm. Day one starts inland from Aberystwyth and day two near Dolgellau. Also, on 7th, 8th and 9th June, we are organising a Long Weekend of Motorcycling. See Events for more information.

Trail riding if you have your bikes

We believe we have some of the best trail riding routes in Britain! As well as trail and enduro bike days, Colin has a Moto Guzzi Stelvio for leading big bikes and a Suzuki SP370 for classic days.

"Just a quick email to thank you, Colin and Lucie for an excellent couple of days trail riding. Thanks to Colin for his expertise, advice at the right times; and knowledge of the trails. Everything exceeded our expectations and we all had a lot of fun in superbly relaxed circumstances. We could not believe we were out riding for so long each day!"
Kevin, James, Liam and Peter
