A big ride in the Berwyn mountains including the Wayfarer track
Cadair Berwyn Loop is a mountain bike track in the westtern ene of Ceiriog Valley, Llangollen and the Berwyns in North Wales. It is graded as Hard / Difficult and is 32 miles long. It circles the mountain in a clockwise direction with a pretty equal split between quite country lanes and middle of nowhere feeling moors. The ride incorporates some of the best descents the area has to offer, including the Wayfarer. It’s a fun but hard ride with fantastic views, definitely one of my favourites.

The Cut Gate Out and Back 40km MTB route is an out and back mountain bike route taking in Cut Gate in the Peak District. It’s a great trail ridden in either direction, by following the route as suggested you don’t miss out on any of the magic offered by this Dark Peak classic ride. Being a classic it gets quite a bit of traffic from both walkers and cyclists so the Park Authority has done a bit of work to maintain the trail. That said the single track is superb, a little testing in places but generally within the abilities of all mountain bikers.
This description starts the edge of Ladybower Reservoir, you could also start from Langsett to the north depending on which way you are entering the Peaks. As it’s an out and back you don’t miss out!
