I thought llandegla was pretty awful, though this was a few years back so might have changed since then. Mountain biking by numbers.
Is llandegla the best??
Mountain biking by numbers
Or, mountain biking without most of the cack bits.
Out of all the trail centers i've been too I would say Kirroughtree. Lee quarry is good but its not a trail center, its more of a bike park.
Nowadays i spend my time in the lakes, never fails to provide a good days riding.
no votes for Penmachno?
not ridden there yet but been told its one of the best
all these are just my opinion:-
llandegla - great place, something for everyone
Coed ybrenin - Good
dalby - terrible
monkey trail - too pedally
gisburn - similar to dalby
lee quarry/crag quarry - ok for a play about but thats about it.
glentress - excellent
innerleithen - excellent
penmachno - a bit too pedally , but not as bad as the monkey
grizedale - ok
whinlatter - ok
marin trail - ok
climachx - good
the rest of the 7 stanes - pretty good
They're all worth a visit though if you've never been , just so you can form your own opinion.
I've never been to Llandegla but would love to because I'm a bit of jumps and berms. Gisburn HAS to be the best trail centre though because there's just so much variety, freeride park for jumps, berm baby berm and the lower blue runs for flow, plus plenty of rockiness for more natural feeling trails.
As a centre, Afan/Glyncorrwg used to be my favourite. Penhydd, Y Wal, Whites level, W2, Whites climb & Skyline descent. Now a shadow of its former self. CYB & Llandegla are both awesome, loved Dalbeattie and hated Kirroughtree (maybe due to a lack of fitness at the time). Cwmcarn is my local but is only fun when you're pretty fit due to the painful climb.
