I was there last week. MBR was open aside from the final descent (beginning of the end or something?). I had a sneaky walk down it anyway, the amount of trees down was amazing, it looked like a scene from Troll hunter.
anyhow, slightly rambling point is that most of it was openPosted 3 years agomrbotticelliSubscriber
Was staying not far from the tearoom at the end of Hermon a few weeks back.
First trip there and had the family in tow.
Really enjoyed the natural XC feel to the trails that I got to ride. Rode the blue Minotaur a couple of times with the family, the Slipway is fun if you like berms, and managed to sneak in a ride round the Adamms family, Pink Heiffier, Big Dug and Hermon on a couple of early morning solo rides.
Mark at the tearoom after Hermon is open at weekends and can give to you some route options…also provides dishwasher tablets for the poorly equipped self caterer.Posted 3 years agowaffleMember
What a fantastic place to go! I rode MBR last year in 30 degree heat and it was hard, very hard. My only complaint is that a lot of the trail is made up of fire roads and a lot of the time the trails are shared between other trails, which might not of been the case all those years ago.Posted 3 years agocaptain_bastardSubscriber
Rode the karrimoor trail (I think) in 1990somethink, was brand new at the time and still not bedded in, was a massive step above my normal trails as first time I’d really travelled to ride ( xc races aside). Was on a brand new Cannondale, literally first ride, 80mm of travel that was effectively locked out as I hadn’t dropped the pressure, that and nose on the front wheel set up and skinny tyres made things interesting
Called by there twice last year (once as part of the c2c), remembering how terrified I was down a particular section of trail (we called Kenny Everett, as my bro shouted this as he went over the bars), I actually laughed out loud at how ridiculously easy it is, I actually rode it twice so the second time I could ride it without touching the breaks
Trails still great, but not the same now Dafydd and Sian aren’t dishing out monster cheese on toastPosted 3 years ago
