Trail Riding in Mid Wales

Trail riding on motorcycles uses old roads and byways which never received a tarmac surface. We visit remote and unspoilt hills and valleys, with a variety of surfaces and features such as fords and steep hills. Our days cover between 70 and 120 miles, and include tarmac roads so you need a motorcycle licence. (We have one 125cc bike for a rider is on L plates.)

Trail riding hiring a bike

We provide "trail bikes" which are road legal motorcycles with offroad capability. Some of the green lanes we ride look more like footpaths with overhanging trees and a grassy surface, whereas others are extremely rough and rocky. Trail riding techniques are a mixture of trial and enduro skills, modified for long distance riding. If you are not familiar with this type of motorcycling, we start with a short tuition session. As the day progresses, we will give you hints for each new feature, such as steep hills up and down, and the dreaded ruts! While trail riding, you always encounter water, both as puddles and fords to cross. Our trail riding is varied, our routes plentiful, and we will do our best to choose those which you will enjoy the most. See the drop down menus above the slideshow for dates and prices.

Trail riding is a challenge, an achievement, a load of fun, and takes you to the most scenic areas of Wales!

Trail riding if you have your own road legal bikes

We are happy to guide trail and enduro bike riders, sidecar outfits, and quads. All bikes need to be reasonably quiet, as noise is the main reason for complaints against trail riders. We have some routes suitable for big bikes such as GS1200, and occasionally do a day for classics which Colin leads on his SP370 or Morini Kanguro.

We believe we have some of the best trail riding routes in Britain!

Trail riding using our bikes

Both Colin and Marianne ride and have been providing trail riding for ten years. We usually supply 250cc bikes, but also have a couple of 600s for experienced riders, a 125 for young and learner riders, and a 230 for riders with shorter legs. A set of enduro type clothing is included free of charge. If you are new to motorcycle riding, or have not been on a bike for a few years, you might prefer to take part in our more gentle introductory trail ride. Please ask for the "easy" option.

"Just a quick email to thank you, Colin and Lucie for an excellent couple of days trail riding. Thanks for your advice on what to wear, and especially taking the wet weather gear (things would have been very unpleasant without the waterproof overjackets). Obviously, also thanks to Colin for his expertise, advice at the right times; and knowledge of the trails. Everything exceeded our expectations and we all had a lot of fun in superbly relaxed circumstances. We could not believe we were out riding for so long each day! "
