The Black Mountains Journey (150)
Book for September or enquire for bespoke dates.
3 days of epic riding, finding those hidden descents, and climbs with breath taking views. We promise something you haven’t seen before.
Each day starts and finishes in Llanbdr, we ride from the front door each day.
This is 3 big days of riding in our home, the Black Mountains
...with our local knowledge and connections we will take you on rides you won't find anywhere else. We do love a climb, but only because of what fun is had on the way down. We are currently finalising our super secret routes and if you've joined us on a Wednesday ride you may have experienced a small sneak peak... but then again maybe not. Below is our general itinerary.
Day 1 will be part of our classic Black Mountains ride...choosing the best bits and riding them in a different direction. We've found a few new tracks to add extra off shoots too. don't be surprised if we offer an impromptu swim.
Day 2 may be my favourite, taking in a peak that most don't know we can ride, we do, and we love it. We also plan on dipping into the newly rebranded Dirt Farm Wales park for a berming, swooping, jump if you want to, descent.
Day 3 We know everyone wants to tick off The Gap from their bucket list, and we have ridden this amazing route in every type of version. Day 3 gives you the option of taking in one of the must do rides or we can challenge you with something on the other side with a few secret places on the way to Mynydd Llangorse. We may push, or we may challenge ourselves up one of the steepest tech climbs we've tried.
We will play over river beds, maybe follow a meandering canal, see more sheep than humans, and share cake and laughter over 3 amazing days.
Just like our North Wales 150 Journey we experience a new perspective and awe of what the Black Mountains can offer.
