Šta ćete raditi

Our E bike experience will allow you to explore the beautiful scenery and history of the Sirhowy Valley area with the amazing power of our pedal assisted electric mountain bikes.

After an introduction to the E bikes and instruction on how to use them, when everyone is comfortable and happy with their bike we set off on our adventure.

We will start out on quiet lanes heading down to the 17th century Mill at Gelligroes and learn about it's fascinating history and association with the Titanic!

From here we join the cycle route travelling down the Sirhowy valley for a few leisurely miles before a short climb up into the forest with spectacular views of the valley below and Twmbarlwm (ancient iron age fort) on the hillside
opposite.

We then enjoy the descent down to the park in Crosskeys followed by a short section on a quiet road and pavement before joining a hidden gem of ride on an undulating track through forest and ancient woodland.

Finally we climb back to the top of Mynyddislwyn passing the medieval St Tudor's church then cruise back down to Ty Coppi, for a well earned hot drink and cake and we can share our stories and photos of the day - you will be leaving with a new perspective of the area , new friends and an ebike on your wish list !

The E bikes make it all good fun, they are Eco Friendly

The terrain is tarmac lanes, gravel forest roads .

I live on a small holding, in the Sirhowy Valley, South Wales, running a successful holiday let with my wife Olwen and our array of assorted pets e.g. horses, dogs, cats, chickens, sheep and Alpacas.

I have lived here all my life and been cycling for over 40 years, to my surprise I am still discovering new trails.
Our two sons Harry and Robert share our enthusiasm for the area and cycling , they are both mountain bike leaders , first aid qualified and insured ,they will often accompany or lead the rides.

I have a passion for the hidden beauty and industrial heritage of our area, I have great pleasure introducing people to theses hidden gems, and imparting my knowledge of our industrial heritage.

We had a fantastic time! None of the group had used eBikes before but everything was well explained and we were treated to some amazing views. Would definitely recommend this experience.

We had a great trip with Rob!! My girlfriend is less experienced than me with bikes but she enjoyed it as much as I did. E-Bikes were in great shape and really easy to use! The route was pretty and fun!! We would highly recommend booking this great guided ride.

Thoroughly enjoyed this. Any fears about not ebiking before were misfounded. Great experience. Great company. Was like being out for a bike ride with friends. I’ll be back to do more.

A great experience that I can highly recommend. A fantastic 2-and-a-half hours spent cycling through a variety of tracks with outstanding scenery. Our host for the trip was excellent, explained the ins and outs of the e-bikes clearly, was always attentive and explained trails we would go on making sure that we were happy to proceed. Stopping along the way to point out places of interest and provide information about them, and the happy to sit with us and answer all our questions regarding bikes, e-bikes and local area. An experience that my wife and I will most definitely revisit if/when in the area again.

We really enjoyed our bike tour, we traveled around 22k and up some big hills but the ebike made it surprising easy, thanks again:) Chris & Olivia.

I really enjoyed my morning cycle with Barrie. He explained fully how the bikes worked and exactly where we were going and what we would see. His knowledge of the area made the trip fascinating as well as good exercise on a quintissentially beautiful Welsh morning. I also enjoyed conversing on a whole range of subjects. Barrie was great company and this airbnb experience comes highly recommended. Cheers Barrie!
