Blorenge MegaMix +SUP on the canal..
Bespoke bookings being taken now. Enquire for a date.
Our infamous megamix just got better with it’s plus+ 1. We’ve added a paddle board adventure down the Mounmouthshire & Brecon Canal after the ride.
We have partnered with Paddleboarding Adventures who have created fantastic trips to discover a different side to the Black Mountains... via a social and tranquil paddle down the canal at twilight. We will follow this up with a hot drink, a roasted marshmallow or 2, maybe a pint for those who would like.
We will meet at Gilwern Wharf to start our day. Heading up to the Blorenge through a mix of technical bridleways and gentle slopes. Our goal is 'The Tips' very similar to a dystopian wasteland made out of leftover mining slag. It's other worldly but it also provides lots of fun ups and downs
We make our way over to Keeper's Pond and head up to the mast on the Blorenge where we float over the rolling hills of Telly Tubby landing and descend our way into the Punchbowl for a break for lunch.
There is a steep climb and push to follow, but it's short and worth it for the long, long, descent back down to the canal. Where we then follow the towpath back to the carpark where the paddleboards will be waiting for us.
Karen from PBA will take you through a safety briefing and give everyone time and help to change and kitted up. There will be lights for you and your board to insure you continue to enjoy the paddle as the light fades.
Setting off down the canal saying a friendly hello to the other boats and people we are sure to meet.
