|Wales Laning and Social Weekends were started in 2012 at the request of the Defender 2 forum and have always been fully booked, just see what previous attendees have to say about the 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016 and 2017 trips. The all inclusive day, is centred around the beautiful Metropole Hotel in the Victorian town of Llandrindod Wells, both of which are popular tourist destinations. Priced at £240, this includes bed and breakfast for 2, access to the hotels facilities including the Rock Spa Pool and gym from 1pm onwards, a meal for 2 at our Saturday night group evening meal, where you can discuss the plans for the next days greenlaning. For those arriving early or looking for something different, there is plenty to do in Llandrindod Wells such as the strolling around the lake, a great place for an early Sunday morning dog walk.The Laning takes place on Sunday and is centred around the Elan Valley, home of six dams that were built over 100 years a go to supply Birmingham with fresh water. The day starts at 9.30pm with a briefing in the hotel carpark, then at 10am two groups of six set of following a carefully planned 100 mile’ish route devised by Mark Morgan, our in house route planner. Weather permitting the route takes in some of Wales’ more famous routes including Strata Florida.
