Bike Rentals

book it
Situated in the Brecon Beacons National Park, we are blessed with some of the best riding roads in the world right on our doorstep. And what better way to enjoy them than on one of our brand new BMW rental bikes? Choose from either the 2016 BMW R 1200 GS, the R 1200 R or the sensational S 1000 XR, pick your direction and go. We offer a hassle-free bike rental service, based out of our luxurious Guesthouse, The Old Tredegar. We have a database of amazing ride outs from 20 miles to 120 miles, deep into the Welsh mountains or out to the stunning coastal views of the Gower Peninsula. Every rental includes use of a BMW Motorrad GPS system, ready-programmed with a selection of our favourite roads and rides. Luggage is available on selected models.

The Bikes

R 1200 GS

Clearly a favourite of ours here at Off Road Skills, the BMW R 1200 GS. Perfect for the winding mountain roads of Wales, you can tour all day in comfort and enjoy every twist and turn on the way.

R 1200 R

There’s a lot we love about the GS, but take off-road riding out of the equation and the R 1200 R makes a lot of sense. The same 1200cc horizontally-opposed twin-cylinder engine we’ve grown to love, but in a chassis that’s built to enjoy the twisting roads. We’ve got plenty of those here in South Wales. For shorter riders, we’ve got a low seat option, bringing the seat height down from 790mm to 760mm.


S 1000 XR

Half sports bike, half adventure tourer; the S 1000 XR is 160bhp of pure enjoyment. The XR takes the best bits of the S 1000 RR sports bike (i.e. the engine) and mates them with a chassis that’s comfortable enough to ride all day. Which is lucky, because once you get going you won’t want to stop.
