Steve’s Welsh adventure!

A couple of months back talking with a friend of mine, a tealady called Peter, we figured it was time for our yearly biking holiday. This time we decided to jump in my van, leave the usual highlands behind and head south to explore the Peak district and then the Welsh Valleys.

With 6 days to spare, two bikes, a guitar and a campervan we set too on the hunt for new trails…


For a long time now I’ve been debating where my favourite place to ride a bike is. I guess deep down I’ll always love Scotland, a few years back I fell in love with Isle of Skye so that will always take some beating. Living in the northeast the Lake District is usually my first port of call for an epic type ride.

Sadly until now I hadnt really rated riding in Wales but this certainly boosted it up the rankings. It was out of this world, we had an amazing time and the riding was ridiculous! in a very good way! I now most definately recommend exploring the welsh landscapes.

It leaves me asking the question is Wales possibly the best place for a mountain bike?
