MTB Routes, Rides and Skills Training
in North Wales and the North West
I'm Colin Down, a mountain biker who has been riding the hills and mountains of North Wales and the North West of England since 2000. I love riding bikes, exploring new trails and sharing them with others.
In my spare time I have been producing mtb route guides since 2002 and guiding rides since 2005. This website is a culmination of my extensive experience, with over 80 free route guides to choose from and free guided rides where I will happily show you my favourite trails.
I hold MBL and Night Riding MBLA qualifications. I am also REC 1st Aid qualified and insured by British Cycling.
Vinyl Bear, a local North Wales company, have produced some fantastic Flattyres-MTB clothing. There is a hoodie and male / female wicking T-shirts to choose from, which look good both on and off the bike. You can buy them HERE.
