The Riding

Mid-Wales has a wealth of incredibly quiet roads well surfaced roads with far reaching views, challenging climbs and sinuous descents. We will take in some of the best routes in Mid Wales with achievable distances each day.

The Yoga

Yoga is the perfect compliment to cycling. On the road bike our bodies are quite fixed in place with the only movement being in one direction. We use yoga to move the body in different ways, stretch out and release tight spots and learn how to relax and unwind the mind to support good rest and recovery.

We also use yoga as a pre ride warm up to prepare the mind and the body for action.

The Venue

Our accommodation for the weekend is at The Lodge in Staylittle – Mountain Yoga Breaks’ new HQ. Comfortable rooms, amazing views, a dedicated yoga space and a full bike workshop for any post ride repairs. Price based on two sharing. For a single room please get in touch to check for availability.

The Food

For us the food we serve to our guests is just as important as the quality of rides that we offer. We have an excellent chef that has worked with us for the last few years who creates the most delicious feasts for our hungry riders. All freshly prepared the food will be vibrant and nourishing to keep you well fueled for the weekend. We serve a mix of mainly vegetarian with some meat options  depending on the requirements of our guests. Vegan and Gluten free diets are always well catered for.

Tea and Coffee will be available all the time as well as a good array of herbal teas and cakes to nibble.


Further Info



Q: What if I'm the slowest?


Don't worry. We will always ride at a speed that everyone can manage, and no one will be left behind. On hilly rides it's quite normal for a group to spread out, as everyone climbs at their own pace, and we'll always stop to regroup at the top of the longer climbs. If you're not sure how your riding speed will compare to everyone else's, you can use the Friday afternoon ride (when we'll all be together) to get a sense of where you are in the group, and to decide which of Saturday's rides to opt for.

Q: How long will the rides be?

A: There will be 50km (30 miles) rides on Friday afternoon and Sunday morning, each with a couple of big hills. On Saturday you'll be able to choose between two rides: Polly will be leading a ride of around 80km (50 miles) with 1,400m of climbing; Emily will be leading a ride of around 130km (80 miles) with 2,400m of climbing. If anyone's keen to get more miles in at the end of the day, there'll be the option to do an extra loop.

Q: What equipment do I need?


A road bike with slick tyres. (These routes are possible on almost any bike, but it'll be easier to keep the group together if we're all riding something fairly similar.) Please make sure your bike's safe to ride and in good working order, so that the group doesn't get held up by avoidable mechanical problems. If you think your tyres or gear cables might need replacing at some point, sort this out before the weekend!
Puncture repair kit, pump, spare tubes and multitool.
Water bottle.
A decent waterproof.
Please also check the forecast before packing, and bring along any gloves, overshoes, arm-warmers, knee-warmers, base layers or gilets you think you might need. This will be different for everyone, but if in doubt, it's always better to be over-prepared.
You should also bring a couple of emergency snacks, and make sure you have somewhere (i.e. jersey pockets, food pouches) where you can carry them.

Q: Do you cater for special diets/vegan/gluten free?

A: We cater extremely well for most dietary needs. Often our gluten free puddings are the envy of everyone else at the table. Just make sure you let us know any dietary needs

Q: Is there wifi/phone reception?

A: In most of our venues we have limited phone reception and wifi. We see this as a rather good thing, giving everyone time to switch off and unplug.

Q: Can I have a single room?

A: In Elan Valley lodge everyone can have a single room if they wish. At some of our other venues the rooms are shared twins. We do have some single rooms available with a supplement. See individual events pages for details.

Q: Do I have to attend all the yoga sessions?

A: You can attend as many or as few of the sessions as you wish.

Q: I'm not flexible at all, can I still do yoga?

A: Yes! You don't need to be flexible to practice yoga. The practice itself will improve range of motion, strength and flexibility so being stiff is all the more reason to start.
