- Coedy, Penmachno or Marin?
I actually liked the MArin trail alot, o.k. theres fireroad but if you get some speed up on the singletrack then there immense fun, plus the last downhill sections you’ll love to death. Since Pen and marin are only 6 miles apart then you could do both in 1 day, easy viable!!
For me, MArin though. CYB was a huge disappointment, the descending was poor quality(not all of them)

The marin is more old school man made trails, fire road up trail down, nothing too techy. Worth a trip out. But the balance between fire road and singletrack is out.Posted 8 years ago
Pen (including the longer loop) is demanding. Also has a more remote feel.
My favourite trail is the Climachx, and i would do Pen over The Marin give the choice.
Hope that helps.
Got a couple of mates coming over this weekend and I’m still deciding where we should ride…I’ve decided it’s one of these three (will ride the dragons back if coedy) but I’ve never ridden Penmachno or Marin trails.
We’re happy to do long fireroad climbs instead of steep technical ones (prefer it really!) but the real key is the descents; need to be fast, technical and really good fun (jumps etc… are a bonus!). Soooo which one?Posted 8 years agoTelemaster18Member
If you can take a lot of fire road climbs(yawn)the decents on the marin are really good fun (jumps an all!) Penmachno is made up of 2 loops the second of which is not great but makes it longer. Penmachno is about 13 miles (loop 1). Do that in the morning then Marin which is about 15/16 miles in the afternoon or vice versa. Both have very good downhill singletrack you’ll just love it! I do!.Posted 8 years agozokesMember
If you want fast tight singletrack, but can suffer lots of fire roads, then the marin. If you want to feel a bit more ‘out there’ with a few more technical sections, then Penmachno. (Or both, if you’re feeling energetic). Unless you have a time machine, I wouldn’t bother with CyB 😉Posted 8 years ago
