Did Blade last Friday for the first time, no parking fee cos I went by bike. The only thing that did my head in was a few short runs that you had to get the bike on it’s back wheel to get out of and back in to the next trail. It’s a hell of a finish though.Posted 8 months ago
New sections open on the Wall by the way and the Bike park at the top has reopened with all new jumps.
Did Whites twice yesterday – had to give up after that as I managed to crack my helmet on th second go just before darkside (old helmet not bad crash). The climb in particular seems to ahve suffered since I was last there, very scrabbly with loose rocks. I prefer whites to blade as its more XC and hardtail friendly.Posted 8 months agoKamakazieSubscriber
I don’t think Skyline route has been properly open for quite some time but there was some news from MTB Wales that they were going to do some work to it & have a proper re-opening.
That said, the old route may actually be rideable.
Can’t help with current status of the cafe’s but both were open late last year when I went.Posted 8 months agomrpeaskiMember

you could make it a bit longer by switching onto Blade on the return, which would likely add a few km (5 or so at a guess), but that’s about it. There was someone on here a few months ago who said they’d ridden the old bits recently, but I tried following a gpx of the old route and couldn’t find where it went after the lake overlook…tho I didn’t try that hardPosted 8 months ago
