Rhyd Y Felin is a special place to ride. It has that big mountain feel as if you were in the Alps. With a high speed rocky top section,  followed by an open section full of stumps and roots there is no time to rest. The final section takes you into the woods and down a field that can easily catch you out.

We welcome all age groups of riders from 13 upwards. Our courses are designed to both be challenging for elite riders as well as allowing novice riders to get down safely with a smile on their faces.

You can also use any form of downhill, enduro or trail bike of your choice to compete on.


The Pearce Cycles Downhill Series is a British Cycling Regional A Ranking Series.  It sits one level below the HSBC UK National Downhill Series so is a good introduction to racing.  You don't need a British Cycling licence to race our series, but we'd recommend you look at the benefits of British Cycling membership.


Please note that Rhyd-y-Felin is a privately owned forest and therefore access is prohibited. Please do not try and ride the track outside of organised events.

Unauthorised use will stop events being held at this excellent venue.
