Covid-19 update

During the Covid-19 pandemic, the safety and security of our guests, our staff and our suppliers is paramount.

Before joining a WildBike holiday you will be asked to show full Covid vaccination status and a negative Covid LFT test in the previous 24 hours.

We will make decisions about going ahead with or cancelling holidays on a trip by trip basis, reflecting government advice, WHO advice, and the detailed local situation at our destination. Although we will give as much notice as possible, because of the rapidly changing situation we may need to make late decisions.

In case of enforced cancellation of a trip by us, we will continue to be as flexible as possible through 2022, offering alternative dates or credit for a future holiday. In specific circumstances where we conclude this is not possible, we will offer a refund.

If you, independently, need to cancel your holiday due to Covid, our usual cancellation terms will apply. In these circumstances travel insurance may cover nonrefundable cancellation costs.

Stay safe and thank you for your understanding at this difficult time for us all.

3 days, 3 rides in 3 different places all based from one wonderful spot. Don’t know why we didn’t think of that sooner! This promises to become a WildBike favourite. So what’s it all about?

Day 1 will be spent on a big mountain ride, with some stunning off-piste singletrack high up on the gritty ridges of the Black Mountains. We’ll spend most of the day above 600 metres, with three awesome singletrack plummets to the green valleys below. The views are immense and the sense of being ‘right out there’ biking is incredible. The highlights have to be the long, long, flowing singletrack off Crug Mawr and the steep plummets off the northern edge of the Black Mountain ridgeline down to the Wye Valley.

Day 2 will be a Brecons Classic – our take on the Two Passes ride that goes within touching distance of The Brecons highest summit, Pen-y-fan. This ride has some gentle canal-side bimbling to get your legs working before climbing twice to the 600 metre contour on rocky, rubbley, proper wild trails.

And on Day 3 we’ll guide you off piste at one of South Wales’ famous trail centres. Take your pick from Bike Park Wales, Cwmcarn or even the Forest of Dean. Or if you prefer, we’ll guide you on another unforgettable wild ride from the bunkhouse door.

Is it for me?

We reckon you’ll love this Brecon Beacons guided MTB holiday if you like riding high and remote for a couple of days then fancy a bit of a play on Sunday!

The riding in the Brecons and Black Mountains is generally not as technical as some of our other destinations like the Lakes or Peaks, but there are some stretches of steep boulderiness that you will need to tackle. You will also need the kit and the mindset to ride for a few hours in potentially hostile weather and away from cake and shelter, due to the prolonged time spent up high on the hill, above 600metres!

Getting there

For reference and as a guide, our base on the edge of the Black Mountains is an hour and a half from Bristol over the Severn Bridge and an hour and a half from the M42 around Birmingham.

After booking, your joining details will be sent to you 6 weeks before your holiday.
