We have teamed up with Liz and Brian at Great Trewern B&B from Llandegley to offer you a weekend break and mountain bike experience in the beautiful Radnorshire hills.
Your Break starts on arrival at Great Trewern B&B. You will be shown to your room and welcomed with Fresh coffee and Homemade cakes. After you have settled in, you may wish to take a quick walk around the farmlands to get a feel for the area, or you may wish to take your coffee down the garden and view the Llandegley Rocks (the oldest rocks in Wales) or just relax in your room or sitting area and read a book.
You will later be served a 3 course Evening Meal, either down the garden (weather permitting) or in Winter times, in our Elizabethan lounge beside a roaring fire.
In the morning, you will be served a country breakfast and then on my arrival you will begin your guided ride around the beautiful Radnorshire countryside. “From beginner to very experienced rider, a mountain bike is one of the best ways to see the awesome scenery. The mountain biking in this area is ridable all year round, suitable for all ages, skills, and abilities. Our aim is always to give you a fun, challenging and rewarding mountain biking experience that you can take away and wish to return. “
On your return to Great Trewern B&B, you will be met with further fresh coffee and Homemade cake, and later on, another 3 course Evening Meal.
Your Break finishes the following morning after another well earned Farmhouse Breakfast.

A week ago I pieced together a route to Aberedw Hill, its something I’ve wanted to do for a long time .
in the picture on the right Aberedw Hill is the long hill in the distance the picture below is off the top of Aberedw Hill looking up the Wye valley with Builth Wells in the distance. Its a ride for people with good fitness levels there is a lot of tough climbs, the route to Aberedw Hill is varied with single track, green lanes, stone tracks and open moorland, it is a really good ride with amazing views .
the views alone make this ride really worth doing, the distance is just over 27 miles and virtually all off road with just a couple of miles tarmac im really pleased to have finally pieced together this lovely ride.
Mucky Breaks is pleased to announce Bike Hire will be available in the next few weeks, it has been something we have wanted to offer local people and visitors to the area for sometime.
We feel that Bike Hire will enhance the business and provide more opportunity’s for people with out a bike to try mountain biking or cycling in general .
The bikes we will have for Bike Hire will be Merida Big Nine TFS 900 29rs , we feel that having 29rs for hire will give people who already have a mountain bike the chance to try a 29r out to see if they want to change to the new wheel size and for beginners we feel the larger size wheel makes mountain biking a bit easier.
I will post more details later when we have the bikes.
The NEW LOOK S TRACK clipless pedal, first impressions are excellent. With very fast engagement with a good snap making you feel confident and secure, when pedalling hard all your power goes through to the back wheel I think that is due to it having the largest foot platform of any clipless pedal.
Its the most solidly built clipless pedal I’ve used the platform area is stainless steel , it feels and looks like it is built to last , overall its a very very good pedal . The new look s track clipless pedal is also very light at 145g per pedal .
I will post more info on how it performs long term .

sunday afternoon about 4 mile outside of town , was a good but hard mountain bike ride due to all the heavy rain we have had , the ground was very heavy going but still very rideable , there is no real boggy stretches around here so its good all year round .
