Nant Yr Arian , wots it like then?
Superlight, it's XC territory all the way. The long trail (Summit) is basically all the short trails put together, plus an extra loop of rocky natural double track. As Glen P says I doubt there's a weekend's riding there, head over to Machynlleth and do the Cli-Machx too!Posted 8 years agos8tannormMember
Go to Nant, but buy a copy of OS Explorer 213 … loads of stuff to ride there. Perhaps ride from Nant to Mach', do the ClimachX then ride back. Makes a superb big day out. You could also head for the highest rideable point in the Cambrian mountains.
So much scope, if you want any route pointers email me and yes the Bullit would be too much bike.

Another fan here. Mark of Zorro, as already mentioned, has to be one of the best "grin inducing" moments out there! And the barra brith in the centre is the shizzle, look you!
As mentioned above, MAch is worth a trip as well, just up the road. The last DH of the Climachx is utterly brilliant. Really amazingly good, it just keeps on going!

There are really two marked trails:
Summit: a short (15kish) loop, lasts about 1hr. Very fast, flowy and great fun. You don't need a DH style rig (in fact it's more fun if you don't, trust me).
Continental (may have been renamed recently): The same as above, but with an extra load of stuff, mostly doubletrack and some very loose descents. DO NOT undertake this without a waterproof, this takes you into the @rse end of nowhere and it gets very cold very quickly. I am not joking.
There's also loads of MX type tracks around if you look hard enough, but as someone else said, get a map.Posted 8 years ago
