Was ihr unternehmen werdet

Our E bike experience will allow you to explore the beautiful scenery and history of the Sirhowy Valley area with the amazing power of our pedal assisted electric mountain bikes.

After an introduction to the E bikes and instruction on how to use them, when everyone is comfortable and happy with their bike we set off on our adventure.

We will start out on quiet lanes heading to the top of Mynyddislwyn and its medieval church, then decend to the local village, where we access Cwmcarn Forrest via a hidden route and follow forrest roads to the top of Mynydd Maen (views of Twmbarlwm a 2000 old Iron Age fort and spectacular views of the Bristol Channel and surrounding area). There will be a short stop here to have a rest , take in the views and refuel with your own snacks and drinks. We then enjoy an exhilarating ride down to the visitor centre followed by a relaxing ride home following the canal path and a disused railway line.

The E bikes make it all good fun, they are Eco Friendly (batteries charged by solar panels)

The terrain is tarmac lanes, gravel forest roads and some single track.

Refreshments will be available on return and we can share stories and photos from the day, you will leave with a completely new perspective on the area, new friends and wanting to get yourself an E bike!!

I live on a small holding, in the Sirhowy Valley, South Wales, running a successful holiday let with my wife Olwen and our array of assorted pets e.g. horses, dogs, cats, chickens and goats.

I have lived here all my life and been cycling for over 40 years, to my surprise I am still discovering new trails.
Our two sons Harry and Robert share our enthusiasm for the area and cycling , they are both mountain bike leaders , first aid qualified and insured ,they will often accompany or lead the rides.

I have a passion for the hidden beauty and industrial heritage of our area, I have great pleasure introducing people to theses hidden gems, and imparting my knowledge of our industrial heritage.

I am MBLA level 2 mountain bike leader

This was a really special experience. We started off with really clear instruction from Barrie and then left at steady pace, building confidence on route. The ebikes were fantastic. They make going up a hill feel like it’s nothing! They are in great working order and well looked after. I felt totally safe the whole way round. The views and scenery are breathtaking and Barrie’s knowledge of the local area is in depth and fascinating. We had an option to take a biking trail down and it was lots of fun. Barrie was super patient with us and helped us when it got a bit tricky. If want the experience of mountain biking but perhaps can’t quite manage cycling up a mountain this is for you! I fully recommend it!! Thanks Barrie and Harry for a fantastic day out :)

Barrie was friendly and professional and had a great knowledge of the local area. The route was well planned with snack breaks & toilet stops built in and alternative routes for a more “mountain bike” experience. We would highly recommend this tour.

From the off Barrie and his son Harry couldn’t have been more welcoming. Really knowledgeable about the bikes the area. Myself not ridden a bike for a while and my wife for 10yrs plus, they made us feel very comfortable and confident quickly and tailored the route to suit us. Can’t recommend highly enough!

We embarked on our e-bike tour with Barrie and his son, Harry who joined. My girlfriend isn't the most confident of cyclists and they did everything to make her feel included and part of the experience without feeling out of her depth. Barrie has excellent tales and local knowledge and folklore of the area and the views were spectacular! Both friendly and provided a safe enviroment for us all. If anyone wants to see the Welsh countryside in all its beauty but doesn't fancy the hard work of cycling up hills then this is excellent value for money, guided and simple. The bikes do all the work and you will barely break a sweat - A must do if you visit the area!
