North Wales guided mountain biking vacation
Description of North Wales guided mountain biking vacation
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
We can cater for vegetarian and vegan diets.
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetAs a responsible tour operator, we pride ourselves on only working with local, independent partners who share in our passion to positively impact our local communities and environment.
Our expert mountain bike guides will ensure you are well briefed in the ways of the Welsh countryside, keeping livestock safe and protecting the native wildlife. There are many places all over North Wales where people ride mountain bikes, however often the routes they use are not appropriate. These illegal routes damage the landscape, causing irreversible erosion of the hillsides and moorland. They also often disturb nesting birds, such as the rare Black Grouse. The heather-clad moorlands around Llandegla are the perfect habitat for this shy bird, but irresponsible mountain bikers put its future at risk when they donít respect the restrictions in place to protect it. There is so much fun to be had on two wheels in this region, with a little knowledge and respect, mountain bikers and the natural environment can both thrive side by side. Our guides will ensure you experience the very best riding North Wales has to offer, while showing the utmost respect to our precious environment.
The accommodation for your mountain biking adventure is a 5* rated hostel, voted in the Top 100 Hostels in the World. This stylish hostel is as environmentally conscious as we are, sourcing furnishings from local businesses wherever possible and, most recently, creating a new breakfast hamper for guests. These hampers are filled with the finest, locally sourced produce and packaged sustainably using reusable wax wraps and glass.
PeopleAt the heart of everything we do is a passion to support our local community. One of the best ways we can do this is to solely work with local independent partners, all of whom are equally passionate about supporting the community in which they're based. Finding employment in rural areas has always been a challenge and often leads to young people feeling they have no choice but to move away when they reach employment age.
Our mountain bike guides all live locally so they know the area like the back of their hand. And when youíre welcoming guests into your home, itís natural to have a passion for ensuring they have the best possible experience.
Both mountain bike trail centers that we visit are significant employers within their local areas too, creating much needed opportunities for young people especially. Weíre proud to support both centers by incorporating their trails and cafes into this epic mountain bike vacation. Both centers also source their cafe produce locally, ensuring the provenance of your food as well as doing their bit to support the local economy.
