heading to the above for easter weekend, first time and looking forward to it! one or maybe two of my mates who are going were planning on hiring bikes when we got there, though have just looked and doesn’t look like that’s possible at the centre itself. does anyone know if there are any decent places close by that will hire them out for the weekend?
Nant yr Arain is an amazing trail centre but there isnt anywhere near that you can hire bikes.
Summit Cyclces in the nearby town called Aberystwyth has demo bikes but i dont know if they will allow you to take them out to nant.
You will love it mate. I lived there for 3 years during uni and miss riding there everyday.Posted 9 years ago
excellent – keep the good vibes coming, can’t wait already!
cheers for suggestions, as well – just checked on the holey trail site and looks like might be an option. we’ll be getting there a couple of days before the others so might be able to travel a bit to pick up if necessary.
any other suggestions welcome!Posted 9 years agochvckMember
If you have time, then also do the climachx – I don’t think much of most of the trail but tony the tiger makes up for it (I really, really hate going uphill)! Video of tony the tiger – http://www.vimeo.com/3243297.
Somehow I don’t have any videos of Nant yet, despite riding it more than any other trail centre, it’s great fun!Posted 9 years ago
now my mate who is going with me is a moderate cyclist, but does not have a suitable bike for this purpose. i’m taking my lovely fullsus bike and might take my other one for him to use. is he likely to find it very hard going on a hardtail alu xc bike with rigid carbon forks?Posted 9 years agoblu-toneMember
NyA is a great centre and I love the longer trail it has a real wild feel to it and a great finish.
Would also add my approval to the ClimachX train just out of Machynlleth just for Tony The Tiger.
The guys at Holey Trail do have bikes for hire and PLEASE give them your custom, they are true Knights of MTB. They loaned me a rear shock, saved my weekend and declined any payment !!! All they asked was a mention here !
They also run a spiffing MTB bunkhouse right in the middle of Machynlleth which is very handy for all trails, pubs, cafes etc.
They also do MTB Guiding.
Check out their WebsitePosted 9 years ago
cheers blu, someone mentioned them above so they’re the only people i know in the area who might do anyway! it will be a good excuse to drag the missus to a bike shop before my mate gets there as well. just tried them but no answer. i’ll give them a ring this avo. 🙂Posted 9 years ago
As a local I can thoroughly recommend the Continental (Conti) trail. There’s plenty of extra trails especially when you get out towards Nant y Moch.
If you want a bit of Guiding give me a shout, my emails in my profile.
If I’m not around give one of the other guys from Ystwyth MTB a shout….Posted 9 years agoSillyoldhectorMember
I rode the Conti twice last Saturday and only saw 4 other riders during the whole 5 hours. Still lots of deep water (puddles) on the track, deep enough to get your feet soaking wet. Brilliant ride and awesome scenery. The Garmin had the total climb for 2 laps as 1650 so it may be a little over the stated 670Posted 9 years ago
