just got from another forum ....


Tom's Farm MX and Enduro courses. Give Tom Breese a ring on 01597 870202 for details (practice your Welsh placenames first though). Open 7 days a week from 10:00 all year round.

Directions: From the center of Rhayader (the clocktower), take the A470 NW towards Llangurig for a few yards. Then right onto B4518 just after arts centre/cinema/whatever-it-is, signed to St Harmon. Go through St Harmon & keep going to Pan-y-dwr. Turn right by pub/phone box towards Bwlch-y-sarnau. When you get to a junction on a right-hand bend, go straight on - not right to Bwlch. This should take you into the forest. Look out for a left turn just after a right-hand bend, & take it. Follow this down, through the gate at the end of the forest, & behold the wonderland

right so thats where it is , seems some confusion as to whether its still open thou !
have read about a death , injuries n health n safety , tax evasion , blockades by police etc !


anyone confirm this??? Also talk of Tom and his Mrs being beaten up after a break in.....

I'll just have to go and chance it to see, either that or give Tom a call although he never normally answers the bloody phone. Anyone thinking of going i would highly reccomend it as a good weekend or day out, you can literally ride anywhere within the fences a good few hundred acres anyway, all this for a tenner its true

I heard on saturday that Tom is in prison at the moment for tax evasion,(apparently a tax inspector turned up posing as a rider paid cash and started asking questions)also the acess road to his farm has been blocked because it,s not a right of way.Looks like there out to get him.But again it might just be a rumour.There was also a great place to ride at Corwen (north Wales)but that has been closed, due to the farmer being sued by a rider who fell off in november 08 and ended up paralized.The land owner is now being done for neglagence.Theres getting less and less places to ride all the time in this nanny state!

Its a shame if he is in prison there are'nt many places left to ride in this country anymore, but just a mere 1700 miles away is the best place in the world for riding, Serbia is awesome, Me and four others just got back and where we stayed was a national park and you can ride anywhere , there's hills, woods and rock for miles, every day we were out we ended up 60 or more miles away from the cabin just by riding off road
