Lady Augusta is working with Natural Resources Wales at Bwlch Nant yr Arian’s open day and mountain bike trail launch on Saturday 19 October.

The open day will run from 11.00 am – 3.00 pm, with the trail opening ceremony at 11.30 am.

The Melindwr Trail is a five-kilometre, blue grade (intermediate-level) mountain biking trail. It is designed as a progression for riders who are competent riding blue grade trails to improve their skills before progressing to the next grade up.

Bwlch Nant yr Arian is great for mountain biking, but is also a fantastic place for walking, running and horse riding. The open day will celebrate the variety of different activities you can enjoy here, with sports clubs on hand throughout the event to offer advice on how to join in.

There will be fun for all the family too. Small World Theatre’s giant puppet Lady Augusta will be entertaining people with performances at 12.30 pm and 2.30 pm, finishing in time for people to enjoy the kite feeding at 3.00 pm.
