Mid-Wales has a wealth of incredibly quiet roads with far reaching views, challenging climbs and sinuous descents. With three days to play with you will see plenty of the beautiful Welsh countryside and possibly tackle some of the areas best climbs.
We will have two ride distances going out each day so you are free to choose how much you want to do. Our ethos is to encourage a supportive environment so that nobody feels left behind but do have a think about the distances and remember that Welsh miles are a fair bit hillier than a lot of other places you might ride. There will be shortcuts on some routes too so if you want to head back for an early sauna we can point you in the right direction.
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. You will learn useful warm ups, meditations and breathing exercises to help you get the best out of your ride.
Our accommodation for the weekend is at a luxury barn conversion set in the glorious Mid-Wales countryside. With a private swimming lake, a gym and Finnish sauna the barns are part of Garth Farm, 240 acres of hill, fields, woodland and dingle, wildlife pools and spectacular views.
The comfortable rooms are mostly all ensuite and are either twins or doubles. There are 4 single rooms available on a first come first served basis.
There is plenty of space to relax both inside and out with a range of different communal spaces. There is underfloor heating on the ground floor and a woodburner for the cooler spring evenings. All in all we think this will be a fabulous place to return to after a long ride.
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.
