Bikepacking Wales | fietsgids (voor mountainbikers)
18 multi-day off-road cycling adventures
Bikepacking Wales by Emma Kingston contains 18 great multi-day mountain bike adventures. For such a compact country, Wales has a fantastic variety of trails to explore. Explore the world-class tracks around the remote Elan Valley, traverse the long, grassy ridges of Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons), enjoy the stunning coastal bridleways along the Gower peninsula, tackle the popular Trans Cambrian Way across Mid Wales, ride the heather-lined singletrack in the Clywdian Hills, and take a tour around the highest mountain in Wales and England - Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) - including an optional route to its summit.
The trails aren't the only draw though; these routes take you under towering castle walls, through huge slate quarries and past some of the country's prehistoric monuments so you can better appreciate Wales's rich culture and heritage. Each route includes all the information you need to help you plan your ride, including points of interest along the route, swimming spots, food recommendations and accommodation options, in addition to stunning photography and overview mapping. Downloadable GPX files of the routes are also available, including optional routes and shortcuts.
This book is full of practical tips and essential advice for both experienced bikepackers and those who want to try it out for the first time. Let Bikepacking Wales be your companion as you take to the trails to experience the finest bikepacking adventures that Wales has to offer.
