Wales Weekender – Help!!
Sounds familiar… http://singletrackworld.com/forum/topic/wales-weekend
How about a ride around Elan Valley / Rhayader for the Monday? http://www.justgoride.co.uk/Content/Routes/Viewer.aspx?id=1411 Stay locally on the Sun night near / in Rhayader. Accommodation: http://www.clivepowell-mtb.co.uk/accommodation.phpPosted 4 years ago
I would greatly appreciate advice and ideas…
This weekend me and a mate have a full pass (Fri evening to Monday afternoon) and we are off to Wales. Could you help fill some gaps?
Friday afternoon – Drive to Ruthin in prep for the Schwalbe MTB Marathon series, call in at Llandegla and do the red route on the way.
Saturday – Ride in the Marathon 55k or 70k, drink beer and camp.
Sunday – Set out for Mid Wales (Nant-yr-Arian) with the intent of doing the Syfydrin Trail, stay in a pub for the night?
Monday – Smaller ride within the area before setting off back to Leicestershire
All open to suggestions of change if you think there is something better on offer in the area etc (like the idea of semi wild singletrack routes) Also accommodation ideas for the Sunday night would be welcome.

You’ll need a map unless you’re happy relying on GPS.

It’ll cut 6 or 8 miles off if you start from Rhayader centre but, yes, it’s worth a weekend on it’s own. There’s Llyn Brianne not far away too for one of MBR’s usual “Trail of the Year” contenders – supposedly the longest uninterrupted singletrack in the UK: http://www.streetmap.co.uk/map.srf?X=276235&Y=252815&A=Y&Z=120Posted 4 years ago
Food for thought for future trips there, thanks.
Thinking of trying to pull in the marathon, Syfydrin Trail and possibly spend Monday at Coed-y-Brenin when it should be quieter, it’s just the logistics of it (back tracking, accomodation)
Never actually been to Brenin.Posted 4 years ago
