Yep, as above, CYB usually rides very well in the wet. However, if it’s really wet, I’d suggest NYA as another option. OK, so not as much opportunity to shred the gnat, but lovely riding in all weather!
BPW should ride OK in the wet for the most part, on the armoured sections at least. Some of the more “natural” bits will be a clagfest, I’d imagine.Posted 4 years ago
Just back back from CYB.Posted 4 years ago
After a three hour drive in beautiful blue skies, it absolutely pissed down when we got there, and was on and off rain all day.
It seemed to make no difference to the trail, even the rock gardens were okay. They really aren’t joking when they say it is all weather. I found it better than Cannock in the dry.
We had a really great day. I had assumed wrongly that I would be flying up the climbs, but had clearly repressed the memory of those never ending ups.
Tried out my new kit, Montane ‘dyno’ kept me dry in the rain but also wasn’t too sweaty, so really pleased.
Smorgasbord tyres were grippy, had no pinch flats and just seemed the best tyres I’ve used. (Not that I’ve used many).
Sealskin socks did well, but by the end my feet were sloshing around but at least were warm.
And wearing base layer on my legs, under shorts and knee pads kept legs warm enough but more importantly stopped my knee pads from rubbing my knee caps raw.
A perfect day all round, I had really forgotten how awesome CYB is.
