About

O'r Dechrau / From the Start

WyeMTB was born in the summer of 2010 by two mountain bikers who both live and work in the Wye Valley. The idea behind the company is to spread our love and passion for the sport.

WyeMTB HQ is based in Monmouth, South Wales.  Monmouth and the surrounding landscape has been identified as a Area of Outstanding Natural Beautify (AONB), making Monmouth an idyllic area to host a wide range of Outdoor Adventurous Activities.

If you are looking for a formal qualification in mountain biking, such as the British Cycling Mountain Bike Leadership Award (levels 1 to 3), Go Mountain Bike Award (levels 1 to 5), mountain bike skills sessions or if you’re just after a cracking mountain bike ride with friends or family we are able to cater for you.

WyeMTB endeavours to cater for all our customers needs, please contact us with any questions on: info@wyemtb.co.uk
