Half Day Mountain Bike Hire


Hire one of our mountain bikes and set off on your Llys y Fran Adventure.

Leisurely explore the reservoir around the main cycle route, riding the complete circuit of the reservoir, along a gravelled track. If you are feeling more adventurous why not give our mountain bike trails a try. With 12 trails that branch off from the main reservoir route at varying grades, there is something for everyone. But before you set off why not help improve your skills and increase your confidence on our pump skills area. It’s a great place to start your cycling adventure and develop the bike handling skills required for the trails.

The lead booker must be over the age of 18 to hire this equipment. Upon arrival to Llys y Fran, please sign in at our Bike Hub. From here we can ensure you are kitted out with all the right equipment and one of our instructors will provide you with a safety brief before you begin your adventure.
