Mountain Biking and Yoga weekend in Elan Valley
23 June 2017 - 25 June 2017
Cost: £275 Location: Elan Valley Lodge
Staying at the Elan Valley Lodge where the riding is straight from the door this weekend is all about the big rides. We have 2 days of riding in some of the most wild and remote landscapes of Wales. Expect some lung busting climbs and some fabulous natural descents in a place where you can ride for hours without seeing people....only Red Kites, Skylarks and a few sheep!
We have decided to change our format a little bit this year to include some core skills sessions on the Saturday. We will have a shorter ride on the Saturday with a skills sessions included. Sunday will see us having a slightly longer morning yoga practice and a big ride before heading back for tea, cake and farewells. We will also have a question and answer session on the Saturday evening to explore yoga practice as a mountain biker, the whys and hows and any other questions that come up. You will also be sent some bike specific yoga sequences so that you can keep your practice going at home.
Is this weekend suitable for me?
The riding in the Elan Valley is mostly not technical - its all about the lung busting climbs and fast delicious grassy descents with wild open views, so technical ability is not important although some mountain biking experience would be preferable along with reasonable fitness levels and a willingness to give things a go.
