Dirty Weekend - Glamped!
12th-15th May 2022
A wonderful weekend in the Welsh hills of Snowdonia National Park
Suitable for all level of riders except total beginners. Please attend our Train4Trails Level 1 if you have no previous off-road experience.
Come and enjoy the green lanes of Snowdonia National Park with Moto Junkies whilst experiencing the fine dining and luxury cabins/Shepherd huts at the Nick Sanders Expedition Centre in Machynlleth, Mid Wales.
Join us at the centre on Thursday for afternoon tea followed by a 3-course meal (and wine) cooked by the super talented Dr. Caroline (Nicks wife). Have a drink at the bar and retire at leisure to one of the cabins or Shepherd huts inspired by various places around the world (Patagonia Cabin/Route 66 Cabin etc). All accommodation is single occupancy unless you are coming with a partner.
On Friday morning we have a beautifully cooked breakfast before we hit the trails. Guidance and tuition are available every step of the way for newbies - BUT you MUST have some off road experience before attending. Please see our Train4Trails or 121 events if you have never been off-road.
We ride all day (grabbing a simple lunch en route) and take in the beautiful world-class scenery. Working with mixed ability groups, we offer harder loops for the riders who really like a challenge and gentle potter loops for those who just want to take their time and enjoy the views.
We return for tea and cake, and after another well-earned 3-course meal on Friday evening, we will gather around the fire pit or in the bar and no doubt talk about that day's adventures. Have a guitar? Bring it along.
On Saturday, after a full Welsh breakfast, we do it all again.
Warm showers (with towels) and tea&cake are available after every ride.
We leave at leisure on Sunday morning.
If you are unsure if your bike is suitable, feel free to give me a shout.
This is a very relaxed weekend with the promise of many giggles.
