Bike Park Wales tomorrow
I’ve been twice, once in the dusty summer, and once a few weeks ago following a week of rain. It was grippier following all the rain!Posted 6 months ago
Mary on the front, whatever you fancy on the back. Much fun. Just a bit slower in the motorway type bits due to the tackyness of the track.typerMember
I was there Sunday gone and it was running nicely until my day was cut short by an off on Insufficient Funds, knocked myself out cold I did. Concussion, bruised ribs, bruising over my right kidney and slight whiplash……. not to mention a ruined TLD full face and mobile phone.
Sure you’ll survive though 🙂Posted 6 months agobigyinnMember
Its still pretty grippy and drains ok. Some of the bits through the forest can get slippy and a bit churned up.Posted 6 months ago
Take some spare pads and a change of clothes for the afternoon. Been there in December when it was lobbing it down, lots of layers to keep warm and its fine.joebristolMember
I went a few weeks ago and it had been pouring down with rain overnight and for a few days prior to that. Rain mostly held off whilst we were there.
Trails we did (most of the reds and blues) still ran fine – apart from one of the newer ones called Surfin Bird – I’d give that a miss if I were you as it was muddy and stodgy and not much fun.
You’ll still have a good day as long as you don’t get horizontal rain.
Uplift is fine once you’re on the bus – but we had a few long waits the other week which I hadn’t experienced before.
Tire wise I don’t think it matters too much what you have – I’ve been 3 times with 3 different brands /types of tire and none have been an issue.
Insufficient funds as mentioned above is really fun – just don’t get too over excited with the speed – there are 3 jumps close together about halfway down hay could catch you out if you carry too much speed. You’ll take off on the first one and smash into the up part of the next one, then even worse on the 3rd one! I only noticed this on the recent trip as I was carrying so much more speed.Posted 6 months ago
