MB Swindon’s trip to the Brecon Beacons, 19th – 22nd July 2019.
* A ladies’s space is currently available – please contact us if interested*
Following the success of last year’s trip, we’re heading to Brecon again this summer. Although the accommodation is now fully booked, anyone is welcome to join any of the rides over the weekend.
The rough plan is as follows – on Friday, for anyone who can make it, we may have a spin around the trails of Cwmcarn – or possibly a ride near the accommodation. Timing probably late morning/early afternoon.
On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll be riding in the Brecon Beacons. Saturday’s route is yet to be decided, but we’ll make it known nearer the time.
On Sunday, we will be riding the famous Brecon Gap. We will be meeting for the Gap ride on Sunday 21st at Talybont Bike Hub, LD3 7YQ where there is plenty of parking. The ride is approximately 22 miles, and while not especially gruelling in terms of elevation, contains two or three fairly technical, rocky sections so whilst not a truly novice-friendly ride, the sections are walkable if preferred. It could be described as a perfect ‘first technical ride’.
There is a very good pub opposite the bunkhouse – we ate there last year and are booked in again. There is also a BBQ in the garden of the bunkhouse, and other pubs/restaurants nearby (not walking distance though).
We currently have a ladies’ space available – please contact us if you are interested.
