MTB & Road Weekend Trip to Capel Curig N. Wales 16th May – 18th May 2014

After the success of last years trip to Capel Curig, I have again booked the North London Mountaineering Club barn for the Nights of Friday 16th  & Saturday 17th May 2014.

The barn provides an ideal base for riding the Marin trail, which can be accessed a couple of miles down the road.
The excellent Penmachno trail is only a ten minute car journey away, and boasts one of the best single track descents I have ever ridden. North Wales provides an equally good venue for the road cyclist, with great circular routes around the Snowdon range, an the legendary Pete’s eats cafe!

The accommodation is very reasonably priced at only £5:00 pounds per head per night. The barn is equipped with  alpine bunk space for thirty in three dormitories. No bedding is provided, so you will require a sleeping bag. The barn will be able to comfortably accommodate up to twenty riders  whilst storing bikes inside. There is a large kitchen dining area, with plenty of cooking facilities.
For those not wishing to cook, there is the excellent Bryn Glo cafe situated in the car park, about two minutes from the barn.
There are three pubs within easy walking distance of the barn, so Saturday night should be sorted.
To book your place send an email to : jim.meech@googlemail.com or contact me via the MTB Yahoo group.
