This website is designed as a resource for everything you will need when visiting the Machynlleth area with mountain biking in mind. If you are here for the day, a long weekend or a couple of weeks, there is plenty to keep you entertained, fed and watered after your day in the saddle.

The ClimachX Trail has new way markers to aid navigation.  All the same, why not use OS map Landranger 135 in-conjunction with the MACH maps we have provided?


Community Trails

In 2005 local mountain bikers and business people formed a community group with the aim to publicise the great mountain biking in the area and boost tourist income.

The group successfully fund raised to waymark the Mach 1, 2, 3 & 4 routes on rights of way around Machynlleth, and then to build the ClimachX Trail in the Dyfi forest, with the help of a community regeneration group, Ecodyfi.

In 2017 this group became Beicio Mynydd Dyfi Mountain Biking and is now the community group responsible for the maintenance of the ClimachX mountain biking trail in the Dyfi Forest. We are looking to foster a good relationship with Natural Resources Wales via our stewardship of the ClimachX Trail, with a view to subsequently developing more mountain biking trails in the Dyfi Forest.

The ClimachX Trail is managed and maintained by volunteers. Please show your appreciation!
