Covid-19 update

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

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, we will continue to be as flexible as possible through 2021, offering alternative dates or credit for a future holiday. In specific circumstances where we conclude this is not possible, we will offer a refund. This policy is in line with the European Commission for Consumers’ advice on travel directive in connection with Covid-19.

If you decide, independently, not to travel and choose to cancel your holiday, our usual cancellation terms will apply. In specific circumstances travel insurance may cover nonrefundable cancellation costs.

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

Covid-19 alert: You will be aware the operation of our business has been affected by Covid-19…

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 highlight has to be the final long, flowing singletrack descent off Crug Mawr to a welcome pint at The Bear in Crickhowell!

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.

Your Brecons and Black Mountains Accommodation

What a spot for this Brecon Beacons mountain biking holiday! Just look at that view! And this private bunkhouse, set high on the slopes of the Black Mountains, is just as great on the inside! Lots of rooms with no more than 4 in each room, a good nights snore-free sleep is guaranteed. We have open fires, a big lounge with enough sofa space for everyone, hot showers, secure bike store and all the rest! And cos it’s up one heck of a a slope from the road, we’ll even lay on a taxi to the pubs!

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 near Crickhowell between the Black Mountains and the Brecons is an hour from Bristol over the Severn Bridge or an hour and a half from the M42 around Birmingham.

If you prefer to travel by train we can pick you up and drop you off at Abergavenny station, about 20 minutes from the bunkhouse.

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