favourite trail/trail centre????
I really enjoyed Laggan but I’ve only ridden if once.
Other than that, I love Innerleithen with the last bit or the red missed (Plura Craig) and lower sections of the DH instead, (make or brake?) A bit more or a pedal up but worth it and then Caddon bank of course. Big grins.Posted 4 years agoreadikusSubscriber
Another one for Nant y Arian. I did most of the Welsh trail centres one week last year, and I loved absolutely everything about Nant. You’re on fast, flowing singletrack within a few pedal strokes, the scenery is stunning, the red kites are awesome and the cafe is pretty good too.
My favourite section of singletrack is probably Labyrinth at Swinley. Pretty special.Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Trail centre, innerleithen but only because of all the stuff that surrounds the trail centre route- the dh and offpiste stuff makes it, the actual red route isn’t great. If it’s to be just the actual official trail centre than coed y brenin.
Trail… Eh, too many. Half of La Thuile? (K2 maybe). In the UK I’ll go with one of the descents into kinlochleven, what they call the Kennels, in the wet. Just… perfect.Posted 4 years agofunkrodentSubscriber
Trail centre – from my relatively limited experience (never biked in Scotland, though that will be rectified by a road trip in the Autumn) I would say CyB, though I also enjoy the short loop of Penmachno.
Trail – Without a doubt the loop from Edale taking in Royche Clough and Jacob’s. Though I’m doing Cutgate in a couple of weeks *prays for dry weather* so that may change..
UK trail centre, Hebden Bridge
And a big +1 for that. More crazy, rocky, jumpy, narrow, slippery trails than you could shake a stick at, all connected by a well laid out network of trails and roads and with a plethora of good caffs, pubs and chippies at the trail centre in the valley 😉Posted 4 years agoandytherocketeerSubscriber

was going to say the trails I found most fun were Cairngorms and Helvellyn. Or at least of all the ones I’ve ridden in the UK, they’ll be the ones on my “must go back to” to do list.Posted 4 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
Unfortunately only one trail, but it’s almost perfect.
I really like the last few secions of Blue at Brechfa for being rediculously quick, kinda like knowing that you can ride the trail, but even so it’s so narrow and you’re right on the limit so that any minor slip up is going to result in some fairly major pain.Posted 4 years ago
