Bikepacking Wales by Emma Kingston contains 18 fantastic multi-day mountain bike adventures across Wales.
Traverse the long, grassy ridges and heather-lined singletrack of the Brecon Beacons, explore the world-class trails in the remote Elan Valley, enjoy the stunning coastal trails on Rhossili Down on the Gower, complete the popular Trans Cambrian Way in the undulating Cambrian Mountains, and take a tour around the highest mountain in Wales and England – Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) – including an optional route to the summit of Eryri (Snowdonia). For such a compact country, Wales has a fantastically wide variety of trails to explore. The trails aren’t the only draw through; these routes take you under towering castle walls, through huge slate quarries to discover Wales’s mining heritage and past some of the country’s incredible prehistoric monuments.
Each route includes all the information you need to help you plan your ride, including points of interest along the route, food recommendations and accommodation options, in addition to stunning photography and overview mapping. Downloadable GPX files of the routes are also available, including optional routes and shortcuts. This book is full of practical tips and essential advice for both experienced bikepackers and those who want to try it out for the first time.

About the Author
Emma Kingston is a writer, teacher, route creator and selfconfessed map geek living in Bristol. She took up bikepacking
when she realised it meant that she could stay out and ride her bike for longer, take the time to explore interesting places
off-route and eat an outrageous amount of ice cream.
Specialising in mountain biking, she has travelled extensively around the UK, Europe and further afield in search of ever more flowing singletrack. After publishing her first book – Bikepacking England – in 2021, Emma jumped at the chance to share her favourite trails over the border in Wales, resulting in her latest book, Bikepacking Wales.
