Trail rider in winter in Snowdonia

Trail Riding in Mid Wales

Trail riding is exploring the countryside on roads without a tarmac surface. We use "trail bikes" which are road legal bikes with offroad capability. The green lanes we ride vary from simple gravel tracks to extremely technical going. Riding techniques are a mixture of trial and enduro skills, modified for long distance riding. If you have never been trail riding before, we start with a short tuition session at the start of the day, and then provide hints for any particularly tricky features.

Trail riding is a challenge, an achievement, a load of fun, and is doing you good!

"Just wanted to thank you for the excellent day’s trail riding yesterday. I really enjoyed it despite the unpredictable weather! Routes were great and I thought the bike was excellent – hopefully I will bein touch when we are next in Wales to do another day’s riding with you. Best regards."
John from Essex

Trail riding if you have your own bikes

Colin and Marianne offer more than a guiding service for trail riders! If you are new to trail riding, we offer tuition in techniques and can advise on how to find legal routes and how to set up and look after your trail and enduro bike. In the case of breakdown or accident, we will try to assist you with recovery.

If you book more than one day using Machynlleth as a base to stay, there are enough routes for two or three days’ riding with little repetition of green lanes. We are lucky that the green lanes in Mid Wales and South Snowdonia are varied and scenic, so you and your group will have a fantastic time!

Trail riding using our hire bikes

We have been providing trail riding for ten years. We supply bikes to suit riders of different heights and experience from our range of Honda, Yamaha and Suzuki motorcycles, 125 to 600cc, and a set of enduro type clothing is included free of charge if required. If you are new to motorcycle riding, or have not been on a bike for a few years, we offer a more gentle introductory trail ride and are happy to schedule a day especially to suit your requirements. We like looking after you!
