Guided MTB Rides

Let me show you my favourite trails

The Flattyres-MTB rides are a great way to experience my routes without referring to a map or GPS. That leaves you free to enjoy the trails and scenery, while relying on my years of experience being an MBLA qualified guide and instructor. These guided rides cover all the areas my route guides do in North Wales and the North West of England, including Snowdonia, the Peak District, the Lake District,
Yorkshire Dales and the Pennines.

Bespoke Guided Rides

If you want to ride with your family and friends on a ride tailored to your exact needs I am available as a guide for hire, to make sure you all have the best day out on your bikes. Full details are available on my Bespoke Guided Rides page.

Wednesday Social Night Rides

My Wednesday Night Rides are free guided rides around my local trails of the Clwydian Range, Llangollen and the Ceiriog Valley, on a variety of terrain suitable for a wide spectrum of riders, from those just venturing out of the trail centres out to the experienced trail rider. The emphasis on these rides is about getting out in the hills and having fun, with plenty of stops for a chat and to catch your breath.  The rides start at 7pm and last for two hours with time for a quick drink at the end. Details on these rides can be found below.

Ride Details

Night Ride: Snowdon Ranger, Llanberis, North Wales
Starts at 6pm on Wed 27th Jun 2018:
This will be a ride of 11.5 miles taking advantage of the long evenings to ride my Snowdon Ranger route. The plan is to leave the Electric Mountain car park in Llanberis at 6pm, to be at the summit for 8pm lastest. We will then be returning via the Ranger Path and Telegraph Valley. If you want to join us for the climb and return on your own back down the Llanberis Path that's ok too. This is a big technical ride at a decent pace, so please make sure you are up for it before committing. If this sounds like something you could handle we will be starting from the main car park, next to the Electric Mountain visitor centre, in Llanberis (map link).
