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: Moel Arthur, Clwydian Range, North Wales
Starts at 7pm on Wed 6th Jun 2018:
This will be a ride of 11 miles on the trails of the Clwydian Range following my Penycloddiau Circuit route. It is a great introduction to mountain biking in the Clwydian Range as there is nothing too technical or too steep but with stunning views pretty much every direction you look. The ride will start from the Moel Arthur car park on the ridge of the Clwyds (map link).

Night Ride: Graianrhyd, nr Clwydian Range, North Wales
Starts at 7pm on Wed 13th Jun 2018:
This will be a ride of 13 miles in to the east of the Clwydian Range following my Llanarmon Loop. It follows the trails through the low hills around Llanarmon-yn-Ial, Eryrys and Nercwys Forest for some great riding on a mixture of double track, singletrack and forest track. The ride will start from the car park at the Rose and Crown in Graianrhyd (map link).

Night Ride: Llangollen, North Wales
Starts at 7pm on Wed 20th Jun 2018:
This will be a ride of 10.4 miles on the trails to the south of Llangollen following my Llangollen Badi route. It consists of two big climbs at two steep, rocky descents that finishes with it's name sake, the infamous Allt y Badi. It may be short but don't underestimate this ride, it's not for the faint hearted! The ride will start from the short stay car park in the centre of Llangollen (map link).
