WyeMTB has spent over 15 years exploring South Wales and spent 10 years living in the Rhondda Valley and has found some of the best natural descents it has to offer.

Our trusty Landrover Defender will move the small group of riders around the Valleys taking in some of the best descents the area has to offer.

This day isn’t a dedicated uplift service, but instead, a mechanism to take the strain off you and also allows us to get to more riding done than you can imagine!

The grading of these trails range is from top end red-graded trail centre, to black-graded trail centre standard. The trails are steep, technical and rocky, with some extreme exposure. Some of the descents will start over 600m above sea level.

We will have essential spares in our support vehicle to keep you riding, and provide lunch out on the trails to keep you fuelled. You’ll even finish off with a beer at the end of the day to celebrate your riding achievements!

We work on a maximum of seven riders to each guide.  We can offer exclusive group packages if you want to ride with your mates, feel free to contact us for more information.
