Mountain Bike Hire in the Black Mountains National Park

Feeling energetic and looking for a fun way to explore the Brecon Beacons & Black Mountains National Park? Then hiring a Mountain Bike might just be the thing for you!

Here at Black Mountain Activities we’ve been hiring mountain bikes for over 25 years, giving us a great deal of knowledge and experience in the industry and the surrounding area. We have a wide variety of mountain biking routes that will take you on the natural trails the Black Mountains & Brecon Beacons National Park have to offer.

Equipped with a 21 speed ‘Trek’ mountain bike, you can navigate your way up onto the Black Mountains where you can take in the breath-taking views of Hay Bluff and the surrounding valley, you can explore the scenic beauty of the Begwns National Trust Site on the edge of the Cambrian Range or, for something a little less challenging you can stick the tarmac roads and explore the local town of Hay-on-Wye.

Mountain Bike hire is available for a half day, full day or for 2 or more days. Helmets, Maps and Puncture Repair kit all included.

Guided days also available.
