08a. Mid & North Wales Including Day Off-Road - 31st Aug to 2nd September 2014 - DragonMotoTours

About the tour

Mid&North Wales including 1 Day off-Road Riding
August 31st to September 2nd 2014 – 3 days / 2 nights


We are delighted to announce an additional tour date for 2014. This forms a new and exciting alliance with the Mick Extance Kawasaki Experience and the multi award winning, 4 star Lake Vyrnwy Hotel and Spa. Located close to each other in the Berwyn mountains of North Wales, they lie in the heart of some of the finest riding roads in the UK, and in an area of astounding natural beauty.


The tour will meet in the Shropshire Borders, we shall take a route via the Severn valley, ride over the Wenlock Edge and cross into Wales after a coffee stop. We continue riding west along the banks of the river Teme crossing the route of the Offa’s Dyke Path to our lunch stop overlooking the Hafren Forest.


Following lunch, we ride deeper into the heartland of Wales taking some of the exceptional roads that the principality has to offer ultimately arriving at our hotel overlooking the iconic Lake Vyrnwy. You will have an opportunity to take in the views of the lake from the terrace which runs along the front of the hotel, or unwind in the hotel spa pool and sauna before sitting down to an excellent evening meal in the hotel’s Tavern Brasserie, perhaps enjoying a pint of two of local hand pulled Ale and some banter with the locals.


On the second day you will have an amazing opportunity to enjoy a fabulous day of off-road riding in the heart of the Tanat Valley, riding on a choice of Kawasaki off-road motorcycles through the forest tracks and over mountains tops which offer simply stunning views. This is personally hosted by the legendary Mick Extance, and will be tailored to your requirements. It is open to all abilities whether you are experienced, a complete beginner or even if you have never ridden a motorbike, as Mick puts it – “all you need is a taste for adventure and a good sense of humour”!!


We shall return to the hotel late afternoon which will give you ample time to explore. Perhaps take a walk down to the lake or simply unwind over a drink on the terrace. You might take advantage of the Spa and treat yourself to a well-earned massage.


There are alternative options available for those who do not wish to join the off-road experience. A hosted ride-out to explore more of the excellent riding roads in Wales is planned for the day, or you may prefer to simply relax around the hotel and the Vyrnwy Valley. Included in the cost of the tour is a Voucher for complimentary use of the Spa and thermal suite which features a Jacuzzi Pool, Salt Steam Room and Sauna, and for those not riding during the day the Hotel are happy to provide a light lunch. You might like to take advantage of discounted rates on some of the Spa treatments on offer.


However you have chosen to spend the second day, we shall all meet together in the evening to enjoy dinner, held in our own private dining room. The Hotel chef will prepare a special menu that showcases all the best that Wales and the Borderlands has to offer. Joining us for dinner will be Mick Extance, not only will he showcase photographs from the tour so far, but also give a presentation on his seven years of experience as Britain’s most successful ever rider in the Dakar Rally.


For the third and final day of the tour we shall leave Lake Vyrnwy, riding through the Snowdonia National Park and on the fantastic motorcycling roads of the Denbigh Moors to lunch. We then continue through the Clocaenog Forest and ride over the Horseshoe Pass towards our dispersal point near Oswestry.

For day three of the tour we will take you on a variety of motorcycling roads through the heart of the Snowdonia National Park taking in the Pass of Llanberis and the descent through Nantgwynant towards a coastal route that offers stunning views of both Tremadog and Barmouth Bays.  We shall then ride inland along the estuary passing the foothills of Cadair Idris before our lunch stop near Machynlleth.  For the final part of the day we ride through the Dovey Valley towards our departure point at Welshpool.

This tour will be run using the corner marking / second rider drop off system of navigation.   If you wish to accompany us you are more than welcome, but equally you are free to ride as you wish if you prefer making your own way or riding with other members of the tour group as you will be provided with comprehensive daily route sheets and a tour itinerary.

02. West Coast of Ireland Motorcycle Tour : 8th - 12th May 2014 DragonMotoTours

Please note that this tour is now fully booked, however, you can contact us to be considered for a cancellation should it arise or to enquire about any of our other tours.

Our 5 day motorcycle tour to the West Coast of Ireland starts with a mid-morning ferry crossing from Holyhead to Dun Laoghaire. After dis-embarking we will spend the afternoon taking in a ride through the Wicklow Mountains National Park including a coffee stop at Avoca which was made famous when the Tv hit “Ballykissangel” was filmed there in the 1990’s, before spending our first night just north of Dublin.

The following day we ride across country to our destination for the next 3 nights on the coast in County Clare where our 3* hotel has stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Whilst in County Clare we have two ride-outs planned visiting a variety of local attractions. One ride-out takes in the north of the county where we shall start our day with a short coastal route to The Cliffs of Moher. The Cliffs rise to 700ft at their highest point and range over 5 miles of the Atlantic Ocean which offer stunning views on a clear day and we intend to spend “a wee while” at this location. We continue the day by riding the Atlantic coast line to Black Head and Ballyvaghan and on through the area known as The Burren which is a limestone landscape and has been described locally as “Europe’s largest rock garden”. Before returning to our hotel we ride through Lisdoonvarna which is home to Europe’s largest matchmaking event which takes place in September every year.

The second ride-out we have prepared takes in the southern part of County Clare starting with a ride to Kilkee and Kilrush with views of the Atlantic on route, before riding on the northern shores of the river Shannon. There is an option during the day to visit Knappogue Castle, the name of which translates as "castle of the place abounding in little hills", but as this is a motorcycle touring holiday…. we shall spend our time riding through said “little hills” and on towards Lough Derg which is the second largest lake in Ireland. We shall cross over the Shannon into County Tipperary to have lunch on the banks of the river before heading back into County Clare and the southern reaches of The Burren towards our hotel.

For our final day in Ireland we have a morning cross country route planned to the port of Dun Laoghaire where we shall embark on an early afternoon crossing to Holyhead. Our estimated time of arrival in Holyhead is 4pm, this is dependent on weather conditions and any changes in the ferry timetables.

This tour will be run using the corner marking / second rider drop off system of navigation. If you wish to accompany us you are more than welcome, but equally you are free to ride as you wish if you prefer making your own way or riding with other members of the tour group as you will be provided with comprehensive daily route sheets and a tour itinerary.


Total mileage for this tour will be approximately 780 miles if you join us on all prepared ride-outs.
