Firstly I appreciate some 12 year olds are absolute “shredders.”
However laddo is just getting started with the whole mtb “proper” riding.
He’s rode cannock several times and handles that. Rolls say half meter drops, and has ridden some of the “gnar” ish local stuff. So we are heading for a cheeky few days holiday to Wales literally just before Christmas and wondered whether the uplift would suit us. Tia.
Does it have to be uplifted? Been a while since I was at Antur but it is a tough place to ride so may be restricted to the one blue trail. Lots of good trails at coed y brenin and the skills section has lots of good techy stuff.
Red straight from the uplift drop off turn around point flows better than the blues in my opinion, to the place where everyone seems to stop for a catch up anyway. Then go blue to the bottom as a starter run or two.
Stayed over that way before and have been to bounce below which is literally next door so totally understand the weather comments but it never really crossed my mind as a factor of enjoyability. 2 hrs at coedy will be a lot more bearable than 7 there. Will look at booking perhaps once we’re there or just a few days in advance depending on the weather forecast (guess). Cheers for the advice.
