02. DragonMotoTours Wales - On & Off-Road Tour : 26th - 28th April 2015

This tour is nearing capacity, however, we do still have some availability on our July and October Wales, On & Off-Road tours.  If you would like to find out about these or to register your interest for this April tour should a cancellation arise, please contact us.

We are delighted to announce the first of our On & Off-Road tours of Wales for 2015 which are to run in the Spring, Summer and Autumn.  These form an 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 or two of the local hand pulled Ale.

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 mountain 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, or you may wish to 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, if you book one of the Spa treatments, is a voucher for complimentary use of the Spa and thermal suite which features a Jacuzzi Pool, Salt Steam Room and Sauna, discounted rates apply on some of the treatments on offer. For those not riding during the day the Hotel are happy to provide a light lunch. 

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 and he will give a presentation on his seven years of experience as Britain's most successful ever rider in the Dakar Rally.

Following a hearty breakfast overlooking the lake, for the third and final day of the tour we shall ride 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.
