The Dairi-Pak Mountain Bike Challenge - 11th May 2019

Ready for the off - Dairi-Pak Mountain Bike Challenge

This annual event raises money for the Air Ambulance. We're based in a rural community that relies on this service so it seems appropriate that the community comes together each year to raise funds for this vital service.

For some it's a personal challenge to complete the 22 miles, some come to beat their personal best time from previous years and others ride with family and friends for a fun day out.

It's a great way to get out and ride bits of the countryside that you wouldn't usually have access too.  I've completed the challenge twice and as a result, recommend you prepare for all weathers.  I had bright sunshine, rain, wind and sleet all in the same ride one year!  Sarah Glover

The main route for the Dairi-Pak Mountain Bike Challenge is a 22 mile course mainly on off-road tracks with some challenging terrain if you choose to ride it all.

The event couldn't take place without the co-operation of the fantastic landowners.  The special access sees riders pass through some beautiful scenery in the Berwyn Mountains.

There is also a six mile family friendly ride through the countryside around Rhiwlas.

There are 30 marshall points along the route, including water stations and there is a complementary buffet lunch at the Rhiwlas Village Hall on your return.

There isn't a formal entry fee but we ask that riders collect sponsorship or make a donation of at least £30 to ride the challenge.

We hope to see you there!
