Mountain Bike Wales guide you on a journey through some of the most beautiful, wild and remote landscapes you can ride. Your adventure and experiences will live long in the memory, leaving you with what the Welsh call “Hiraeth meaning a longing, yearning or desire to return to Wales...

Phill & Polly at Mountain Bike Wales live, work and play in the heart of the Cambrian Mountains of mid Wales. They have over 20 years guiding experience in both the UK and Europe, and their knowledge and experience of Wales will ensure you have a real mountain biking adventure across one of Britain's last remaining wild landscapes.

They're ideally situated to guide you across Wales along the Trans Cambrian Way (our speciality), explore the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons to the south, or the stunning Snowdonia National Park to the north. The Elan Valley is literally their backyard, and its large expanse of open land and excellent bridleways offer riders a true wild and remote adventure at every twist and turn along the trail.

The forest centres at Nant Yr Arian, Coed Y Brenin and the Dyfi Forest also have excellent trail heads and are a great day out if you don't want to look at a map. However just a pedal stroke away are a network of off piste single-track trails that offer the seasoned trail rider so much more.

All their weekends include great accommodation, food, guiding and transfers (Trans Cambrian Way) and give you a real flavour of mid Wales life along your adventure. So, visit their website at or give them a call for further details, or if it's just for local information to guide yourself around.

Map & Directions

Road Directions

By car: If travelling by car and using a SatNav, our postcode is SY19 7BU. We would suggest driving via Llanidloes or Llanbrynmair if travelling from the east. A GPS can often send you via Trefeglwys and some very tight, narrow and steep lanes. Difficult to drive when you don't know the road.

By public transport: If travelling by train, there are two stations nearby. Both Caersws and Machynlleth are approx. 15 minutes away. It's roughly a 4 hour journey from central London changing at Birmingham New Street if travelling from South East. Trains run every hour from Shrewsbury.

If travelling by bus, there are bus stations in Llanidloes, Newtown and Machynlleth. The Traws Cymru service travels through Wales along the coast and A470 on routes T4/5/6. Visit for details.

The nearest railway station is Caersws, which is 7 miles away.
