    Going up round the Marin on Sunday. Classic ride.

    I’ve been watching some YouTube vids of off piste trails. The comments don’t signpost you.

    Anyone got a decent gpx that includes some of these?

    Strava doesn’t seem to show me many segments in the videos and trailforks just has the standard loop.

    Seems it’s a case of “if you know, you know”

    Wouldn’t mind a few new descents to mix it up a bit.

    Thanks

    Negotiations are going on to get off piste trails legalised at the moment and peeps are being asked not to Strava them. Keep an eye out for trails cutting off the main fire road, drop in and see what happens, old skool finding trails! Not much help I know.

    Many years back (c2010) we used to session a bunch of trails that come off the Marin trail, it’s at the point where the trail is closest to Betws and they run down towards the river. All clearly visible on Strava. Pm me if you want exact directions.

    The footpaths and paths are pretty good around there…

    There are indeed a selection of tracks dropping down there, shown on Trailforks so we’re not giving up any secrets I presume.

    As for the other stuff, maybe it’s more “if you know you know”, but it’s fairly easy to have a sniff around and ask locals when you’re there.
