Friends Of Llan Velo

A links page to some of our Friends in the area for places to Ride, Eat & Sleep check out the links below. Coming to ride a demo bike, why not make a weekend of it, ask us about other activities in the area.


Ty Beic

‘Ty’ is Welsh for house and ‘Beic’ is Welsh for bike and is the name of our holiday cottages near Bala, North Wales.

We chose the name because we are obsessed by cycling in all of its forms.  We chose this area because it offers some of the finest mountain biking and road cycling in the UK.

We have restored two stone barns to provide self catering holiday accommodation in North Wales.  Situated in the hamlet of Sarnau, 4 miles from the market town of Bala in Snowdonia, our accommodation is the perfect base to explore North Wales.  We are approximately 40 minutes drive from the mountain bike centres of Coed y Brenin, Llandegla, Antur Stiniog (Blaenau Ffestiniog), Revolution Bike Park (Llangynog), One Giant Leap (Llangollen) and the ClimachX, Marin and Penmachno MTB trails.

The area is also superb for road cycling, with quiet country roads, beautiful scenery and epic climbs (and descents) on the doorstep.

Places to Ride

One Giant Leap

Our Session downhill bike is available to demo here.

One Giant Leap has been created to build and develop tracks that are accessible for all, regardless of ability. All our tracks are challenging but track 3 has been designed for fun for experts and beginners alike. Coaching is available for expert instruction on riding our tracks using their own training track based at the foot of our hill.

Outside of official events, only club members are allowed to ride the tracks. It is possible to do your own uplifts using the road to the East of the track. All club members must display their club wrist band on the seat post whilst riding the tracks.


Our shop is based in Llangollen on the A5, right by the traffic lights, there is a car park to the rear of the shop on Hall St and we prefer workshop job bikes being brought to the rear door if possible. our opening times are as follows:-
