So after playing around in the skills park and sessioning a few bits at CYB, where can we go nearby? So far Machynlleth is top of the list. Posted 3 years ago NorthwindSubscriber Antur Stiniog? Marin Trail isn’t so far away, not everyone’s cup of tea though Posted 3 years ago bullandbladderMember Penmachno & Marin trail. Penmachno is ace, but be prepared to get extraordinarily wet – and be sure to add on loop 2. Posted 3 years ago BigJohnSubscriber BYC Posted 3 years ago martinhutchSubscriber Mach trails are closish, NYA if you’re prepared to drive a little further. Any idea on when they think they’ll be able to clear CYB? Posted 3 years ago cloudnineSubscriber Nant yr Arian and climachx.. NYA is really fun and great to see all the red kites Posted 3 years ago flatfishMember Ranger at CYB told me it’d be about 3 month until all the blowdown has been removed as it’s all valuable timber so they can’t just saw gaps to allow the trails through. Posted 3 years ago NorthwindSubscriber That’s no good 🙁 Supposed to be doing the Beast again in April. Tarw seems to be open, another opinion divider but I liked it. Posted 3 years ago martinhutchSubscriber 3 months? 🙁 Posted 3 years ago bigmick25Member Ranger at CYB told me it’d be about 3 month until all the blowdown has been removed as it’s all valuable timber so they can’t just saw gaps to allow the trails through. Just seen a piece on facebook from Andy (MTB Ranger) says best estimate is now 3-4 weeks so here’s hoping. Posted 3 years ago tomasoSubscriber Cader Idris for some classic old school mountain biking? There is a loop in the current Singletrack mag. Other stuff available if riding from Mac that takes you out over the moors and into forests. Posted 3 years ago jkomoMember What about some big open trails with epic scenery? Marin trail? I know it’s a few miles further but it looks ace. Posted 3 years ago SimonRSubscriber Hello. Anyone know whether the marin trail is fully open at the moment? Thanks. Simon. Posted 3 years ago benmanMember Pont Scethin loop? Can be ridden from Dolgellau if your keen. Otherwise pop down the estuary and ride it from Barmouth (clockwise!) Posted 3 years ago jonostevensSubscriber I rode the Marin this time last week as CYB was closed. There are several trees on the trail, but all were passable. Must say I did find the Marin involves a lot of fire road climbing for not much fun in return, but then I am from Essex. Final descent is ace. Penmachno had three diversions in place IIRC. Do a Facebook search for Penmachno and Marin Trail, there are pages on there that update trail conditions etc. Posted 3 years ago Viewing 15 posts - 1 through 15 (of 15 total) The topic ‘CYB alternatives’ is closed to new replies.
