Biker friendly places to stay

Please note our Google Earth location is at Ponterwyd, as this is our main riding location, but it is 30 miles away from where we usually start. If you are hiring a bike, the nearest town is Llanidloes - choose accommodation near Staylittle. If you have your own bikes and prefer to stay in a town, Machynlleth is good as you can do two days without repeating any routes. Please ask if you are not sure where it would be best to stay.

Please feel free to download our accommodation lists:
