Although we here at Brightwater Lakes Caravan Parks Mid Wales may love relaxation as much as the next, it must be said that when you come to Wales that you have to make the most of it. There’s so much to see and do, including plenty of places to go off the beaten track that you would be remiss to spend your whole time here tucked up in bed!

They often say that Wales is the mountain biking centre of Britain and with the sheer scope and size of the terrain throughout the country, you would have to agree. With plenty to challenge yourself with, we managed to compile some of the very best locations to get your cycle on.

If you’re looking for a difficult but rewarding terrain to test yourself on in some of the most stunning scenery, Coed-Y-Brenin should be one to tick off the list.

Situated in Dolgellau, it might not be next door to us in Mid-Wales but it is certainly worth the trip. You and a party can spend a whole day trialling around its courses and relaxing within its special visitor centre once you’re done.

Antur Stiniog
One of the newest trails in Wales, this is a fantastically downhill adventure that might give even the most experienced of riders a firmer grip on the brakes.

Set across four different downhill courses, which racers from all Britain love to test themselves on, it’s also highly popular with the inexperienced as you have the option to take on the green trail: a total beginner’s trail which even a 5 year old could best!

By taking the best parts of Coed and Antur, the trailblazers at Llandegla have one of the most intimidating but rewarding cycling experiences available in Wales.

To start each trail, you have to make your way up quite the challenging ascent to its start so you better have some fitness before you attempt it! Thanks to over 50 kilometres of trails to test yourself on, Llandegla is a must beat.
