Taking my wife on her first MTB weekend away, want her to have a great time so I can start spending bike money on her (much nicer than jewellery!)
Anyhoo... the Chilterns have been recommended as a good area to explore with a newbie, would this be correct? Any other suggestions within 3-4 hours of London? (I know the Chilterns aren't that far away!) As we have access to a van, I'd actually prefer to go further if it's possible and worth it.
She's a fit and healthy lass, I think she'll be ok with 20-30km of riding, if not more. She has zero confidence on anything downhill though (hoping to work on this over the weekend). I think what I'm looking for is nice scenic countryside, bridleways etc for easy riding and the option for singletrack etc to build confidence. Any thoughts?
I was thinking a trail centre, I like Coed-y-brenin, but maybe a bit too much to get started on?
Wherever we go, we'll need somewhere to stay tomorrow night, any suggestions? budget is around Â£50-Â£60 maybe a little more if it's worth it.
cheers for your advice & suggestions
