Element Active – Llanbedr to Blaenavon Fell Race @ Llanbedr Hall
Mar 26 – Mar 27 all-day

Mountain Bikes can take us to places that other bikes can’t – trails through bluebell woods, along skyline ridges, on paths that wind through beautiful remote valleys, away from traffic, immersed in wild nature. With just a little investment in basic skills and techniques, and time to learn and reflect, these worlds can be opened up for you too. At Element, this is what our Beginning Mountain Biking Weekend For Women is all about.

Over Element’s two-day course in the spectacular Black Mountains you’ll ride some of the best trails in Britain. You’ll learn the fundamentals of mountain biking: body position, effective braking and gear selection, climbing and descending with confidence over terrain that won’t be too technical – or terrifying.

Mar 26 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm

Element Active – Beginning Fell Running For Women @ Perthi Crwn
Apr 9 all-day

If you like the idea of being able to run in the mountains but have never started then this will be the perfect day for you.

Fell running is exhilarating: leave your world-worries behind, be out in nature, have a view, feel the elements and be away from the traffic. We think when you’ve tried it that you won’t want to go back to the tarmac! We help you find your confidence – build on your strengths and not let any weaknesses dominate.

This is a day where you work at your chosen level and we get you to find your ‘off road’ feet.
