Bikepacking the Trans-Cambrian Way

Video: A bikepacking trip across Wales on the Trans-Cambrian Way

In the last instalment of our Dirty Half Dozen series, we saddle up for an off-road overnight adventure across Wales

Over the last six months in our Scott sponsored Dirty Half Dozen Series, we’ve been challenging ourselves to try out different disciplines of mountain biking. Between the MBUK team we’ve stayed awake through the night racing 24hr XC, grazed our knuckles off trees racing downhill, learnt new skills with a coaching day, taken e-bikes to the heights of the Lake District, got mud-soaked doing enduro and now it’s time for our final discipline – bikepacking. For this we chose to ride a Welsh classic – the Trans-Cambrian Way. This is a 175km route starts in Dovey Junction on the Irish Sea and finishes in Knighton, in Shropshire. To discover more check out the video below and pick up a copy of August’s issue for the full story.


Our Dirty Half Dozen series is supported by Scott Bikes. For this feature Ed rode the Genius 910 and Ben rode the Spark 910
