'Your advice on the routes and what would work well for our party was spot on. Thank you, we couldn't have done it without you'- Mark Royce
The Welsh Borders network extends westwards from Leintwardine and Presteigne into Powys and the Welsh foothills. It is a remote and hilly area with large expanses of grassy common land on the hilltops. There are big skies, the scenery is constantly changing, and the views are stunning. The area is criss-crossed with ancient drove routes - and although the terrain is not as challenging as either Exmoor or the North York Moors, you should still expect a few steep hills!
There's a one-centre holiday at Felindre (south of Newtown) and another in a more remote location, and there are some options for 'place-to-place' rides.
This hilly area makes for challenging mountain biking.
This ride takes you around the upper slopes of Beacon Hill, before dropping down onto the Teme Valley, where you cross the river into Shropshire. Take the drove tracks into the hills and join the Jack Mytton Way, crossing the River Teme again and back into Wales. In the afternoon there is a lovely ridge ride along the hills to your accommodation high on the slopes of Beacon Hill.
Today you will take a ride on part of the Glyndwr's Way, which is a National Trail that follows a convoluted route through the Welsh Marches where Owen Glyndwr fought against English rule in the early 15th century. It stretches for 120 miles from Knighton to Welshpool, linking with Offa's Dyke Path at both ends. You'll experience grassy tracks, bridleways, hacks across streams and rivers, and totally unspoilt border country.
