Trail Riding in Mid Wales

We provide "trail bikes" which are road legal motorcycles with offroad capability. A motorcycle licence is required for trail riding (one rider can be provisional). Some of these roads and byways look more like footpaths with overhanging trees and a grassy surface! Other tracks are stone, gravel, rock and mud. If you are experienced or learn quickly, you will tackle some extremely rough and rocky sections. Trail riding techniques are a mixture of trial and enduro skills, modified for long distance riding. If you are not familiar with this, we start with a short tuition session. As the day progresses, we take you to more tricky going and will give you hints for each new feature. 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.

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 also lead rides for big trail bikes and classic trail bikes, with van support.

Trail riding in Mid Wales and South Snowdonia is varied and scenic, so you and your group will have a fantastic time!

Both Colin and Marianne ride and have been providing trail riding for ten years. We supply bikes to suit riders of different heights and experience from our range of Honda, Yamaha and Suzuki motorcycles, 125 to 600cc, and a set of enduro type clothing is included free of charge if required. 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! "
