MB Swindon’s trip to the Brecon Beacons, 19th – 21st July inclusive (Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights’ accommodation)
* Two men’s places currently available – £51.88 for the weekend; please contact us if interested*
Following the success of last year’s trip, we’re heading to the Brecon Beacons again this summer. We currently have a couple of men’s spaces available if anyone would like to stay, but in addition anyone is welcome to join any of the rides over the weekend.
The plan for the weekend is as follows – on Friday, for anyone who can make it, we will have a spin around the red trails of Cwmcarn. Timing late morning/early afternoon.
On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll be riding in the Brecon Beacons. Saturday’s route is around Talgarth and Llangorse lake, and 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 novice-friendly ride, the sections are walkable if preferred. It could be described as a good ‘first technical ride’.
There is a very good pub opposite the bunkhouse – we ate there last year and are booked in again for Friday and Saturday. There is also a BBQ in the garden of the bunkhouse, and other pubs/restaurants nearby (not walking distance though).
