The Elan Valley
Vast open moorland dissected by steep valleys, many of which are covered in deciduous woodland with Red Kites and Buzzards circling overhead. The Elan Valley is an area of outstanding beauty and is a mountain biking mecca with flowing trails across the hills, some demanding ascents which are justly rewarded with superb descents down into the wooded valleys below. The hilltops are wild and quiet with only the Skylarks breaking the silence, lovely smooth trails with the backdrop some of the most scenic landscapes in Wales. The Elan Valley is all about the big rides - lung busting climbs and superb smile creating descents, through wild and open moors, river crossing, natural rocky loveliness...the Elan Valley has it all and the riding is straight from the door - perfect!
