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.

Free Guided Rides

I love sharing the trails I have found with others. To do this, as well as producing my route guides, I started my free guided rides. These rides take the form of a monthly Sunday Social Ride and weekly Wednesday Night Rides. The emphasis on these rides is about the getting out in the hills and having fun, with plenty of stops to have a chat and catch your breath. Details on these rides can be found below.

Bespoke Guided Rides

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.

Social Rides

These rides are around 20 miles with the emphasis on getting out and having fun. Good basic mountain biking skills are necessary, but if you can make it around my Cilcain and the Vale of Clwyd route in under 4hrs, you should have no problems (that is not to say you will not be tired at the end). Max 20 Riders

Night Rides

These rides are based around the Clwydian Range and the Ceiriog Valley, with a variety of terrain suitable for a whole spectrum of riders, from those just starting out to the experienced. They start at 7pm and last for two hours with time for a quick drink at the end.

Ride Details

Hooray! I'm Back! My shoulder has heald enough that I can ride proper mountain bike trails again. I might not be doing any enduro races in the near future but the Social Rides are back on 🙂

Night Ride: Cilcain, The Clwydian Range, North Wales
Starts at 7pm on Wed 13th Sep 2017:
This ride will be 10 miles of great riding following my Graianrhyd and Nercwys Forest route. The ride will start from the Rose and Crown pub car park in Graianrhyd (map link).
Night Ride: Cilcain, The Clwydian Range, North Wales
Starts at 7pm on Wed 20th Sep 2017:
This ride will be 11 miles of great riding following my Penycloddiau Circuit route. The ride will start from the car park below Moel Arthur on the ridge of the Clwydian Range (map link).
Social Ride: Loughrigg Fell, The Lake District
Starts at 10am on Sun 24th Sep 2017:
This will be a 19.3 mile ride following my Loughrigg Fell route. The riding is rocky, so the route is pretty weather proof. The climbing is a lot less arduous than most of the Lake District routes as the height of the Fells in this area is not too great. That doesn't mean the descents aren't any good, there are some great ones. The ride will start from the Waterhead car park by the Regent Hotel (map link).

Flattyres-MTB Clothing

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.
