Trail Riding in Mid Wales

Motorcycle trail riding utilises the network of old roads which never received a tarmac surface. They can be grassy and muddy, gravelly and watery, rocky and very steep – anything a lightweight motorcycle can tackle. We are in the Cambrian Mountains near Machynlleth: an area which is remote and unspoilt. Our days cover between 70 and 120 miles, and include tarmac roads so you need a motorcycle licence.

Ladies Introduction to Trail Riding on Good Friday, Easter Saturday and Easter Monday. For more information, please see Events.

"Thanks to you all for an awesome day's trail riding. Special thanks to Colin and Lucie for taking two newbies from never riding trail bikes to be relatively confident on the bikes due to their excellent tuition. I aim to be a repeat customer in the future. All that's left to say is that it was an absolute blast!"
Richard and Chris from Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire

Trail riding with a hire bike

We provide Honda CRF250Ls and a Yamaha WR250R 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 is a challenge, an achievement, a load of fun, and takes you to the most scenic areas of Wales!

If you feel that a full day might be a bit too much, we are offering half day sessions on 6th, 7th and 8th June for £140. See Events for more information.

Trail riding if you have your bikes

We believe we have some of the best trail riding routes in Britain! As well as trail and enduro bike days, Colin has a Moto Guzzi Stelvio for leading big bikes and a Suzuki SP370 for classic days.

"Just a quick email to thank you, Colin and Lucie for an excellent couple of days trail riding. 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!"
Kevin, James, Liam and Peter
