Heading out for an epic ride across mid-Wales in a storm – what could possibly go wrong?!

For the third episode in our Explore Series Adam Blythe is reunited with Kerry MacPhee as Phill Stasiw shows the duo the delights of the Cambrian Mountains.

Welsh Whiskey is an essential item to keep the cold at bay as the trio are treated to a luxury overnight bothy experience, featuring a bed made of wood, and only wood!

A stunning sunrise and the promise of more wilderness gravel trails soon clears heads and quickly there’s a smile on everyone’s face for the descent off of the mountain.
