Heading to CyB this weekend with some friends, none of us have been before and so I'm appealing to the collective wisdom of STW to suggest some trails for day 2.
We're doing dragon's back on the first day, primarily because we're not good enough to be on blacks yet otherwise we'd be doing beast
That leaves 2 reds for the second day, Temtiwr and Cyflym Coch. Are they worth it? Are any of the black trails easier than the rest (so the more proficient riders can go on something more challenging)? or should we go for a bit of a drive to one of the other nearby trail centres?
Since we're relatively new to mtb I'd prefer to stick to trail centres rather than heading off on some of the other natural trails nearby.
Second question, we're staying at Trawsfynydd in one of the log cabins. A search of the forum suggests we can use a sustrans route (82 i think) to reach CyB, using the 'Beginning of the End' descent. Is this right? Is it a case of following your nose or a little more complex?
If you've used the sustrans route before, do you ride back to the holiday park using it or take the A470? Primarily looking for the easiest way back to the beer hut either avoiding busy roads or more hills.
