Your car will be left in a secure car park for the 3 days, your equipment, over night clothes and extra kit will be shuttled from the start of the ride to the accomodation each day. Breakfast and lunch will be provided, all you will need to do is decide what welsh classic you will eat on the evening at the accomodation.
Day 1: The Wye Valley Single track, Ancient Bridleways
25km – 30km
Riding along the Lower Wye Valley. You will be met by the Wye MTB mountain bike guide bus which will shuttle you up the 1st climb, the 1st descent of the trip will be mellow and allow you time to settle into your three days mountain bike adventure based in South Wales.
The Wye Valley has KM’s of single track, double track and rolling hills to keep you entertained for the whole day. What goes down must come up and the Wye Valley has some good steep climbs, so please pack those climbing legs. At the end of the day you will be transferred over to your 1st nights accommodation in The Brecon Beacons which will allow you to get washed and showered and head down for dinner.
Day 2: The Black Mountains; Big Mountain day, challenging climbs and amazing back country descents
30km – 35 km
Day 2 makes use of a A – B style trip, the WyeMTB mountain bike bus will take the sting out of the 1st climb and drop you at the top. This allows you to focus on the descent into the beautiful Grwyne Fawr valley, this valley sees very little tourism and is a real hidden treat of South Wales.
The day will focus on valley hopping, once you descend into the valley you will be greeted with a pleasant climb back out to the ridge line of Waun Fach. From here you will traverse the ridge and drop 250m’s into village of Llanbedr, MBR magazine have given this descent the award of best natural descent in Wales. The ride then moves up the Grwyne Fechan valley towards the Pen Trumau summit of 707m, this can mean on one thing, the final descent to the van, you will then be transferred to night 2 accommodation.
Day 3: The South Wales Valley’s; Classic Ridge ride finishing at the World class Trail centre of Cwm Carn
25km – 30km
Day 3 offers a slightly easier day, slightly less climbing but the same amazing views, great single track and good chat. The WyeMTB mountain bike guide bus and trailer will once again take the sting out of the 1st climb by delivering you to the top.
The route follows the most western ridge line down to Pontypool where you will be met by some of the best natural riding the Valley’s has to offer, remember what goes down must go up, this is very true with the final part of the trip. The final part of 3 day Dragon trail is the final part of the Cwm Carn trail centre, this red trail will deliver the you to the car park for refreshments, we will then transport you back to your vehicles.
