The highest point in England and Wales, our biggest mountain and a magnet for hill walkers, mountain bikers, climbers and tourists year round. Sometimes smothered in dense cloud, sometimes covered in a sheen of snow and ice, but sometimes bathed in glorious sunshine and exposing staggering views across the entire national park.
Snowdon is a classic trip and a true big mountain adventure unlike anything else. It’s a ride that any serious mountain biker will remember for the rest of their riding career, but it’s also a proper mountain, with proper navigation and proper weather. There’s no bail out options up here (although there is a cafe to grab a coffee and cake from) and it’s not a ride many folk do twice, so you’ll want to make the most of it, stop for all the best photo opportunities (or best GoPro shots).
We love this big mountain ride so much that we’ve decided to offer a few very limited places in our guiding calendar this year for you to ride Snowdon with us. There are two days, with just six places available each day, offering you the chance to tick this classic big mountain ride off your ‘to do’ list knowing that you’ve got the backup and support of a local professional MTB guide with you to take you down the best lines, help out with any mechanicals, get the best photos and make sure you get to the top and back in one piece.
In case you’re still not sure, here’s a rough edit from our last trip to the top
