Mountain Bike Weekend – North Wales

From: £320.00

When did your bike last see real mountains?

Nestled underneath Moel Siabod and peeking over the River Llugwy, the ancient mountain village of Capel Curig will be the base for our weekend. Staying at the 5* Rocks Hostel and Cottage, you can expect a weekend of awesome mountain biking, expert coaching, great food and a comfy bed at end of the day. Away from the hustle and bustle of the trail centres our local guide will take you on wild trail rides, stopping to ‘session’ tricky trail features to help build your confidence and get you riding faster with more flow. Each day there will be an outdoor sunset or sunrise Pilates session, to unwind those muscles and minds in our private cottage garden.

Description

Our big mountain weekend to North Wales aims to deliver huge views, lung busting climbs and grin inducing descents that you’ll only be sharing with a smidgen of others. We’re taking you to the roof of the World, well not quite the World, but Wales at least. Climb Snowdon with us a unique mountain biking adventure and moment you shall treasure for ever.

Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales standing a proud 1,085m and it’s a summit you can stand on with your mountain bike, que the selfie! Due to the voluntary agreement our ascent of Snowdon will be at sunrise, so we can be off the mountain before 10am, we promise to keep you well fed and watered on your way up, so you can enjoy the descent down the rangers path and telegraph valley.

Back down at the cottage there will be time to relax and join our outdoor Pilates workshop before lunch. The afternoon will be spent out on the trails looking at advanced mountain bike techniques like drop offs, jumping and how to maintain your flow, Or if you have had your fill of excitement for one day why not curl up and enjoy a good book.

On Saturday evening share your mountain bike stories with like minded people as we head out to the pub for a well earned refuel and a good chat about all thing’s bikes!

To enjoy this weekend you will be at least an intermediate/advanced mountain biker who is looking to progress your riding, experience a new type of terrain and explore trails in remote areas. You will be confident with core mountain bike handling skills and proficient with operating your bike on different terrains and at trail centres on ‘Red’ graded routes. The variety of trails we will be riding on this weekend will include features such as roots, rocks, drop-offs and loose rocks of varying sizes. You must have your own suitable mountain bike or be hiring one (hybrid and budget bikes are not suitable for this weekend schedule of riding). The rides do contain a number of moderately steep long climbs that will be technical in places. Climbing up Snowdon will require 'hike-a-bike' and a decent level of fitness to enjoy the up and down phase of this adventure. Your personal fitness should be at a level where you feel comfortable in the saddle for at least 4-5 hours per day at a social and comfortable pace. You must be over 18 years-old to participate on this trip.
