Set in the heart of Wales in the Cambrian Mountains, Llanwrtyd Wells provides access to one of the few remaining wilderness areas in Britain and in May 2012 will host The Cambrian Bike Fest, a 2 day event offering challenging way-marked MTB routes.
Llanwrtyd Wells has hosted many cycling events including the 2009 Merida, and the 2011 Trans Wales visited the town. The 2010 Tour of Britain was routed through the town.
The event makes a welcome return to Llanwrtyd Wells, it is being organised by local mountain bikers who have excellent knowledge of areas off the beaten track. The routes will take the cyclist through some of the most beautiful scenery in Mid Wales with energetic climbs, exhilarating descents, and sublime singletrack. Parts of MBR's route of the year 2011 will also be used in the event as well.
The organisers are working closely with the community to make this event into a festival, with good riding during the day and the local restaurants and pubs offering good value menus for cyclists and non cyclists alike.
