Riding Penmachno tomorrow; what's it like?
Condition wise or trails? Was there yesterday for the first time and I thought it was great. There are some really really good flowing sections where you can just forget about braking. Middle bit that goes across is a bit rocky and tedious. The last singletrack section is awesome. Plus all the usual 'when will it end' fireroad climbs.
There was lots of standing water in places as it had rained Saturday.
Thanks for update in both respects; sounds like it will be good, despite the fireroad climbs. I'll wear sealskinz for puddles.
Take a coat - it gets cold. Well worth it though
Without stating the obvious, you'll either love it or hate it. Me I love it, not been for ages though. The last bit of single track just goes on and on.
The cafe as you turn off the main road to Penmachno (can't remember what it's called) is great for after ride scran and a hot brew.
Long&fun in an old skool xc type way ....lots of fire road climbs (its Wales!) but a fair amount of singletrack climbing too.
Watch out for a few big holes you can drop a front wheel into and the last descent has some slippery slabs of slate...don't brake!
I ride it lots and love it
