Whether you are a hardened mountain biker or a fun rider who happens to like a drop of real ale, The Real Ale Wobble will be right up your street. The wobble is a non-competitive event marking the beginning of the 10-day Mid Wales Beer Festival.
With courses for both serious bikers and enthusiastic amateurs, anyone can give the event a go. Routes are waymarked and marshalled, with 2 check points along the way and one at the finish where beer tokens can be exchanged for locally brewed real ale (water, hot drinks and soft drinks are also available).
The main feed station will also have a Coffee Pod and BBQ where you can buy more refreshments so please remember to carry money. When you return to the finish there is also another opportunity to have another beer and get some more food. There are showers at the hall available for a small charge.
The scenery is superb, with routes through some of the most delightfully unspoilt mountains and forestry in this hidden gem of a location in the heart of Mid Wales.
Evenings offer an opportunity to try out many of the Real Ales, Ciders and Perries from the extensive selection available across the festival venues, and enjoy some excellent local bands that provide entertainment on Friday and Saturday evening.
Routes - Long route approx 28 miles and shorter route approx 15 miles. All will have technical sections, but these will be marked with easier options available - the ride will be suitable for all abilities.
Check in times - At the Bromsgrove Hall - (LD5 4RA): Saturday 8 until 9.30am.
