Nant-yr-Arian forest sits high on the mountains just inland from Aberystwyth, and offers stunning high-level wilderness riding. With trails heading out into the epic scenery of the Cambrian Mountains, this is a fantastic area for those who like their riding rugged. Just be prepared for everything from true mountain climbs to river crossings and technical rocky descents.
While you might not see another soul in several days riding, the coastal university town of Aberystwyth is a hot spot of nightlife as well as excellent bike shops. If you want quieter places to eat and drink there are plenty in the villages right on the doorstep of Nant-yr-Arian.
