Club ride – Cwm Carn for first timers or slow riders.

This will be a slow and steady lap of the cross country trail at Cwmcarn with plenty of stops along the way – no one will be left behind.

Ideal for anyone relatively new to mountain biking or who hasn’t been to a Welsh trail centre before – though all abilities are welcome to join us.

If this is your first time, please note that this trail is technical in places and quite physically demanding – so you will need a reasonable level of fitness and a reasonable quality mountain bike. If you are at all unsure, please get in touch and we’ll talk you through it.

We’ll meet at 10am in the main car park and the lap is likely to take between 2.5hrs to 3hrs.


Cwmcarn is one of the big name trail centres in Wales. It’s also the closest, being just North of Newport. There’s a cross country loop as well as a downhill track. It is possible to join the two together. We’ll probably do the whole XC route this time though.

The trail is free to use.
Warning: the cafe is certified as being totally crap, so bring food.

Non-members are most welcome to come and join us for a few rides and see if we meet their requirements before taking out membership. To join the club see: club link.
