Big Views Black Mountains
This is the ride you’ve been dreaming about. Our loop takes us to the epic views at Grwyne Fawr to the vistas of Waun Fach. This ride is suitable for anyone with some off road experience. Blue trails are a minimum. Ability to ride 25km is more important than skill. Ebikes are welcome.
There is no question this is a big day, but it is worth it for what you see and accomplish along the way. We will provide fuel (cake), guidance, skills, and fabulous views.
This is an amazing ride exploring the Black Mountains in South Wales. Expect some big climbs, techie descents and some great single-track sections too. It will feature epic descents such as Rhiw Cwnstab off the northern escarpment & the amazing 'Light-Speed' track down the Grwyne Fechan valley. The day will finish off with the blast down Blaen yr Henbant, more than 3 km of super flowy single-track!

Meet your hosts
We will meet in Llanbedr village at 10am to ride by 10:30. Here will do a thorough bike check and answer questions about the ride.
Please bring a packed lunch and plenty of water as there is no where to stop for snacks once we start riding.
There will definitely be flapjacks… and maybe cake if time allows for my baking hat to get on before the ride.
