SCOTT MTB Marathon Series - Rhayader

Rhayader has for centuries offered a welcome for travellers: from the Romans who had a stopover camp in the Elan valley, Monks journeying between the Abbeys of Strata Florida and Abbey-cwm-hir and Drovers taking their livestock to far off markets. This ancient and stunning landscape provides a wealth of opportunities for the modern activity of mountain biking. Why not make the most of the bank holiday weekend and explore the wild and remote Elan valley trails.

Let us take care of your thirst for adrenaline as our route winds its way along the fire road climbs and enduro style descents in the hills and forests to the north of the town.


We want you to join us for the whole weekend, bring friends, bring family and enjoy the party!

Lily's story


Lily was only five years old when she was diagnosed with the rare, disabling and life-shortening condition known as beta-propeller protein-associated neurodegeneration or BPAN. " We were just totally devastated,” says her dad Simon.
