1st/2nd November – Southern Snowdonia/Coed y Brenin
Capel Curig 11th/12th October
This will be based in the Bryn Tyrch – one of the best, if not the best pub in the area – and will probably consist of a day in and around the Gwydir Forest/Marin Trail and a day riding some of the natural stuff in the area. There are plenty of options above Betws as well as Llyn Cowlyd/Crafnant. It includes 2 day’s guiding, dinner Friday and Saturday, breakfast Saturday and Sunday and packed lunches both days. Bike hire can be arranged.
Coed y Brenin 1st/2nd November
This will be based in a superb chalet ran by cycling legends Sian and Dafydd Roberts. The loose plan is to have a day exploring the forest trails on the Saturday, including some that most people wouldn’t have ridden, and then to do a more natural ride in Southern Snowdonia on the Sunday - most likely Pont Scethin or Cadair Idris but there are other options depending on conditions/group etc. Again, bike hire can be arranged
Level-wise, both weekends will suit riders that are happy riding typical Red Trails but there’s plenty for everybody so fitter Blue Trail riders shouldn’t be put off, neither should more experienced riders just wanting to ride somewhere different.
