It’s good, it’s crap, do it, dont’ bother, etc…
On a serious note, it’s one of the best all-weather trails I have ridden, the little snippets of single-track are good if not always balls out fast. The last one (descent) is a corker tho.
As you may have gathered, I like it, whether you will or not no one knows but you should definitely do it to find out.Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
I really like it… I get all the criticism, it does seem to have more climbing than descending, a weirdly large amount of the singletrack is flat or up even though some of the descending is on fireroad… But the good bits are fantastic, absolutely perfect singletrack. Not massively tech as you’d expect, just flow for miles, brilliant stuff.
Oh, and it’s a lovely location as well- take the time for a bit of a break by the lakeside, and for an explore of the mine workings, if you can.Posted 4 years ago
So we’re in north Wales all week and would like to ask you lot of your thoughts.Posted 4 years ago
Rode Snowdon on Saturday ,penmachno yesturday and going CyB tomorrow.
The online reviews bang on about to much fire road, but is it more about spinning and taking in the views.
I feel it needs to be ticked off the list tho.
Not sure about Thursday so if anyone has a nice 20mile loop gpx file they could email me.
Dragons Tail got me smiling for sure. The rest OKish. The fire road/single track climbing stuff doesn’t bother me as I enjoy a little stretch of the legs in that sense. I would happily ride it again if in the area but I wouldn’t visit the area just to go there.Posted 4 years agohughjenginMember
Sorry for thread hijack but how was Penmachno riding ? Looking for a venue for a Sunday ride, and I usually enjoy Pen but the last time a couple of our group went about a 3 weeks ago the report was that it was so overgrown that it was no fun at all ! Hopefully it has been cleared.Posted 4 years ago
