A Wales weekender exploring the breathtaking Brecon Beacons from one cosy location, with morning yoga sessions, refreshing river swims and homemade, healthy and delicious grub to tuck into each evening to replenish those energy levels.
8th Jul 2022 – 10th Jul 2022
2 nights, 3 days
Route and riding - what's nice?
On this weekend getaway to the Brecon Beacons we’ll be cosied up all together in a bunkhouse each night (just outside of Abergavenny). We’ll have home cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner by the wonderful Bella. Think hearty stews, locally sourced fresh salads and perfectly spiced (Welsh) cakes.
Each day we’ll venture out into the beacons to explore the area, including local heritage sites and the moorland scenery.
We'll run different riding options on both days; a shorter, accessible ride suitable for all (we promise) and a longer route that takes in.. a few more hills let's say.. plus yoga and gong sessions run by the wonderful Gurpreet from Brixton Yoga!
All routes are suitable for road, touring and gravel bikes, stop and brilliant local shops and cafes for the all important second breakfasts, third lunches and ample coffees.
Only 5 spaces left!
Our weekend base is a relatively remote, simple and rustic bunkhouse each night just outside of Abergavenny. Mounds of cooked breakfasts, lunches and dinners will see us through the days riding, all cooked-up by the wonderful Bella (she's great). Porridges, granolas, fresh fruit, locally sourced salads and perfectly spiced cakes.. mmm.

You could drive directly to us, or catch a train to Abergavenny or Cardiff and we could arrange a pickup. You could also get a train directly to Libanus

Meet your Guides!
Since joining her first Brake the Cycle trip, Shalyn has been hooked on adventuring by bike. Having now converted countless friends and family (and sometimes even strangers) to the joys of biking, Shalyn joins us to lead rides and share her infectious enthusiasm for exploring by bike, opportunistic yoga, sharing good food and camping under the stars. It's also quite possible that Shalyn holds the record for the most puncture-repairs in a calendar year - so we're glad to be in experienced hands.
These guys are the absolute best. Not just for the expertly planned routes, helpful bike advice, delicious food and incredible places we stayed in, but also for the amazing new group of friends I got to ride with. Memories to treasure.
I had so many doubts to my cycling abilities before embarking on an adventure with Brake the Cycle. I'm so, so glad I went for it - The crew and my fellow cyclists couldn't have been more supportive and I ended up having one of the most memorable 3 weeks of my life. I loved every aspect of the tour - the route, the food, the camping & accommodation, the team, the ethos, and all the wonderful new friends I've made.
Brake the Cycle was an incredible experience, a real adventure that provided too many highlights to recount. Visiting the different projects along the way meant that every day there were things to talk about and consider, the trip couldn't have gone smoother from arrival to departure.
