Description

Meet and Greet

A member of the WyeMTB team will be on hand to welcome you at the accommodation on the Friday night and we plan to have Welcome Drinks around 7pm. Our Head Guide Sam Copp will run through the itinerary for the weekend and will also be on hand to answer any questions which you may have about the weekend ahead. We will pre-book a table for dinner in the local pub which will be hosting us for the 2 days. (N.B The 2 evenings meals are not covered in the cost of the trip).

We will have early starts on Saturday and Sunday mornings, meeting for Breakfast at 7:30am on both days. Breakfast, lunch and trail snacks are all included as part of the total cost of the trip.

Day 1 – The Black Mountains (with a few uplifts thrown in!)

07:30 – Breakfast (incl. in cost of trip)

We will meet for an early breakfast where we can grab a decent breakfast and have a quick chat about the day ahead before loading up the bikes. This will also allow you time to meet the rest of the group just in case someone couldn’t make the Friday night Welcome drinks.

We will then load up the bikes up onto the bike trailer and get you all into the Land drover and head to the 1st drop off for the day. The 1st drop will take you straight to the top of the first ascent. From here we will leave the landy for the morning and you will be guided around some of the best tracks and trails the Eastern side of the Black Mountains has to offer.

The loop around the Black Mountains will have an Enduro feel to it, which will have some good climbs and some amazing descents, all set in the deepest valleys and the highest ridge lines the Black Mountains has to offer. It really is a World class venue!

Before lunch we will head onto the ridge line above Crickhowell and descend ‘the descent from Heaven’ straight back to the Welsh Country pub in the heart of Crickhowell. We will grab some lunch at the pub and you have time to rest, refuel and grab some clean clothes if you need to, before heading back out.

After lunch we will load the landy again and head back into the Black Mountains for some up uplifts on a local hill overlooking Crickhowell. We expect to be able to do two or three drops from the top and make use of the natural descents found on the surrounding hills. The afternoon session will be a mix of enduro riding and ‘bike park’ uplifts.

Then it will be time to recover! We will head back to the accommodation, grab a beer and chat about the day. WyeMTB will host the evening meal again, which will be based from the pub where we will be staying (evening meal cost not included in cost of trip)

Day 2 – 30km big mountain day, challenging climbs and amazing backcountry descents

07:30 – Breakfast (incl. in cost of trip)

Another early start and after a hearty breakfast we will get the bikes and kit loaded back onto the landy and head into the heart of the Brecon Beacons where you will do some classic, big mountain riding.

Day 2 offers a point to point trip where your guide will handpick some of the best back country mountain biking the Brecon Beacons has to offer. Be prepared for some big climbs, breath taking views and descents that will leave you wanting more! We expect to have 4 drop offs and will have ensured we have selected some of the best riding the Brecon Beacons has to offer!

Lunch, which is included in the trips costs, will be based from another Welsh Pub in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

The day will finish with a descent straight back to a local pub and a cold beer! Our Landy will be waiting to return you to the accommodation, where you can then pack up your car and begin your journey home.

Want a little something extra to start off your weekend? Why not book onto a Days Coaching based in the Forest of Dean on the Friday before the 2 day Adventure in the Brecon Beacons? We are running an open FOD FLOW course on the Friday and you can attend this course with a 50% discount code. This will be emailed to you when you book this trip.
