We’ll be staying at the Lion Royal Hotel in Rhayader, an old coaching inn with thick and solid walls, which has fifteen rooms. It’s ideal for a biking weekend because – It has a drying room, a secure courtyard at the rear, and a garage that is big enough for twenty bikes. A group evening meal will be cooked for us each evening, if we order it in the morning, and will cost £15 per person

The hotel has undergone some refurbishment recently, since the new manageress took it over from a relative.
It’s fantastic value at from ONLY £37.50 inc breakfast per person per night, in a double room.
Single rooms cost £50 per room per night inc breakfast.
Check out the hotel’s website at http://www.lionroyal.co.uk/


Rooms are available on a first-come-first-served basis, and not just to people in our group, so if you’re interested, I’d advise you to book very soon.
If you wish to keep costs to a minimum you may wish to make an arrangement with another person or persons to share a twin or family room.
When you’re ready to make a booking, please call 01597 810121.
After you’ve made a booking, please tell me by email at that you have done so and I’ll keep publishing an up-to-date list of people who will be going.

Owen to the rescue with less than four weeks to go!!
Regrettably, new work commitments have determined that I can’t set off until after work on Friday and I need to be back home by the Sunday evening. Owen has agreed to lead our group on the Friday, starting – as planned – in the morning, and on the Monday.
If you too have other commitments on the Friday and/or Monday, you’re welcome to join me on the Friday evening and/or on the Sunday. Just book the hotel for the nights you want and drop me an email to tell me what you’ve done.
