About The Event
The Trans Cambrian is a long distance mountain bike route that snakes it’s way through the heart of mid Wales, and climbs over the oldest mountain range in Europe, the Cambrian Mountains. It is 104 Miles in length (160km) approx and takes in around 13,000ft of climbing. The route starts in Knighton on the border of England and finishes at Dyfi Junction just south of Machynlleth on the Dyfi Estuary looking out to the Irish Sea.
Most groups like to take 3 days to cover the distance, with an ever changing terrain and environment that at time leaves you breathless. We pass through rolling hills that are farmed, steep sided valleys, remote deserts of tussocks and forest. The challenging terrain and inclement weather make the days challenging for some, so it's nice to roll up at a B&B and put some warm clothes on and have a well earned rest and a drink before riding out the next morning. Everything is catered for, your accommodation, guiding, transfers of kit and return to the start.
All you need to do is roll up, and enjoy the scenery.
