THE WELSH SAFARI 2021
A long weekend of adventure along the valleys, mountains and coastline of Wales...
22nd - 25th JULY
WHAT IS IT
A long weekend of adventure on the back roads of Wales, beginning at the legendary Dom's Bike Stop in Leominster before heading down through the Brecon Beacons, riding the famous Black Mountain Pass before meandering back up through the Elan Valley. Snowdonia beckons the next day, taking a circular route that will lead us back to Dom's and a well earned late lunch...
Meeting at Dom's on the evening of Thursday 22nd July, we'll eat dinner, have a drink, camp that evening and wake up ready for the first full day of adventure.
Riding south west we'll cross the border into Wales and head for the beautiful Brecon Beacons, riding some of the most iconic roads in the region. From there the road will lead us north along the famous Black Mountain Pass, meandering towards the Elan Valley for more stunning riding and mesmerising scenery. With the coast in sight, we'll break camp for the evening.
Saturday we'll head for Snowdonia National Park, riding some of the best roads in the area before one last night on the road and then back to Dom's for lunch before saying farewell.
Total mileage of around 350 miles, all on Tarmac but consisting of a lot of single track, tight and twisty. The route will be learner legal and novice friendly but challenging riding in its own right.
Included in the price is the road book and mapping, all nights accommodation and meals for Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.
WHAT’S NOT INCLUDED?
The price doesn't include your fuel, food when on the road and spending money.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
You'll need a well serviced and road worthy bike. Any bike will do, but bear in mind the pace of the main group will be in line with legal speed limits.
You'll also need basic camping gear - tent, sleeping bag, pillow and mat - and some waterproofs, just in case. It is Wales after all. For peace of mind, it's advised that you have full breakdown cover for your bike just in case you do have problems that are beyond simple roadside repair.
