Honda Trail Bike Rides
In the summer we hold a weekend of guided rides for owners of Honda CRF250Ls, 300Ls and Rallys. Lunch is pre-booked, and riders are split into groups of up to six riders, based on their level of experience. The gentle route is suitable for riders with little or no offroad experience and tuition will be given if requested. The intermediate is suitable for riders with a reasonable amount of trail or offroad experience, and will include a few green lanes with some technical going, although most of the riding will not be strenuous. The experienced group will include the more technical trails the area has to offer, so riders should be competent. We ride in the Dyfi Biosphere which is a Unesco designated area where biodiversity is celebrated and protected. Therefore, we conduct all our trail riding days with courtesy and consideration for the landowners, farmers, livestock and other users. This does not mean that we ride slowly – it just means that we ride in a way that is sustainable and leaves as little imprint as possible.
f you would like to combine a couple of days’ trail riding with other activities, or with activities for partners and children, please enquire. If you have your own mountain bikes, we are very near to Phill and Polly at Mountain Bike Wales, or why not treat your partner to a Forest Rally School experience? Less energetic is the Raptor Birds of Prey Experience and more energetic are Brenin Adventures who provide day courses on archery, bushcraft, canoe and kayaking, paddle boarding, sailing, raft building, rock sports, gorge walking and orienteering. Not too far away are white water rafting, horse riding and pony trekking, mountain biking (with or without bike hire), the Centre for Alternative Technology, the Devils Bridge Steam Railway, The Silver Mountain Experience, and plenty of walking!
Once or twice a year in April, May or June, Colin leads a couple of rides which start later than usual, at about 11am. The ride covers a long distance and finishes at 7.30 to 8pm. If you are staying in a hotel or bunkhouse, Colin will meet you there.
Enduros and trail bike rallies
