Coast to Coast 6 day Adventure Ride

You will not be disappointed by this epic ride! Put it on your bucket list. Over 150 miles per day of the most challenging trails in the UK, from the South Welsh coast to the North Welsh Coast and back again.  You will ride through the breathtaking scenery of the Brecon Beacons, Snowdonia and the Elan Valley.  Let Dakar riders Craig Bounds and Tamsin Jones take you on a journey you will never forget.

Day One: Start Edwardsville (Nr Pontyrpridd)
8am breakfast and load kit.
Lunch: Beach at Port Talbot
End: Pontfendgaid
BBQ

Our first day will take us down to the South Coast nr Swansea then up beautifully long trails near the Brecon Beacons to Halfway, from here we will head to the Crychan Forest and Strata Florida where the trail crosses the river many times. This is a long day – expect to be on the bike until dusk!

Day Two:

Breakfast, load kit and leave 9am
Lunch: Machynlleth
End: Barmouth

Leaving Strata Florida we follow a long track around a large reservoir in the Elan Valley then we head to more trails skirting many large lakes and through a deep river crossing which takes us to near the West Coast. After a challenging crossing of ‘Happy Valley’, if the skies are clear, we will get spectacular views of the Sea near Barmouth

Day Three:

Breakfast, load kit and leave 9am
Lunch: Betws Coed
End: Llandudno

The Barmouth loop takes in some spectacular trails with some challenging riding, then up the middle to Snowdonia National Park with the final push up to Llandudno.

Day Four:

Lunch: Corwen – best meat pies in Wales!
End: Llanfair Caereinion

We will try and take it easy in the morning with a leisurely ride down to Corwen. The afternoon offers some great long trails and spectacular scenery. You will notice how different the trails are this side of the country

Day Five:

Lunch: Water break-its-neck falls nr New Radnor
End: Hundred House

We will do some great riding today – it’s surprising how much variety there is in Wales. If it has been raining hard then the Waterfall where we stop for lunch will be spectacular.

Day Six:

Lunch: Hay On Wye
End: Merthyr Tydfil

Our last day is full of great trails; one follows the path of the river. Our tour will end with the infamous Brown Trousers trail nr Talgath then back to Craigs for a well deserved piece of cake or something stronger!
