Clive Powell Mountain Bikes

Activity Holidays

Mountain biking weekends in spectacular scenery and exciting terrain including all food and accommodation, plus free guide support vehicle. Shop provides repair services plus bike hire and sale of bikes, spares, accessories and clothing.

Endless miles of open hills surrounding the dams and reservoirs of the Elan Valley, unrestricted by fences and unspoilt by excessive tourism make this area of Mid Wales a perfect retreat for mountain biking.

The many byways and bridleways which were once used for hauling peat, driving herds of sheep and taking goods to market now make for lung bursting climbs and exhilarating descents for the twenty first century mountain biker.

Where else would you find such spectacular scenery, exciting terrain and the feeling of total freedom?

My guides and I will take you on routes suitable to your ability, and give advice and tuition if you want it. We also act as mechanics for you on the trail. A support vehicle usually meets us at midday, bringing us food and drink, spares and tools, and carrying your clothing, cameras etc. The Clive Powell Mountain Bike Centre has a good stock of accessories, clothing & parts. Good quality mountain bikes are available for hire and we carry out repairs & servicing of bikes.

We place great importance on food and drink. You get a hearty breakfast to set you up for the day. A picnic lunch is brought out by the support vehicle. In the rare event of bad weather we stop at a pub or café and provide you with a lunch. On return from your ride you have tea and cakes, and a veritable feast for evening meal.
