Learning to take control
of the bike is the first step,
the rest will follow...

Forest Freeride Bunkhouse
The riding starts from here as you literally fall out of your bunk straight onto the numerous trails.

You can stay in our compact, comfortable bunkhouse as our guest, free of charge - one night for each full day that you ride with us. If you've booked a one day course, you can stay the night before. A two day course entitles you to the night before and the night of day one of the course.

We do however suggest that you put £5 donation per person, per night into the Wales Air Ambulance box in the bunkhouse. (We hope you don't think this is too cheeky but as mountain bikers, helicopter rescue can be a necessity. They are all run on charity and as the government do not support the service, we have to)!

Facilities include:
• Toilet and wash basin.
• Shower room.
• Seating area with log burner.
• Food preparation area with microwave, fridge, kettle, toaster, crockery and plates etc.
• Tea, coffee, sugar and semi-skimmed milk provided.
• Separate sleeping loft with campbeds.
• Please bring your own sleeping bag/bedding.

Don't forget to bring supplies as the local shop closes early (well, we are out in the sticks)!
