    Ouch ! That’s going to be a talking point at the office and down the pub.

    A good advert for a full face helmet perhaps ?

    That crash looks really painful.
    I’m very familiar with Cwm Carm but I have never ridden those steps.
    Where is that?
    Good luck with the bruised head BTW!! Lucky I guess that you didn’t break anything from that pic!

    It’s on the way up I think, where the stream is on your right. There’s 2 line choices; the easier one is over his right shoulder in the second picture.

    It’s not me in the photo.
    It’s part of the trail. It’s not a footpath.

    After the bridge on the climb, about 1/3 of the way up the climb.
    Most people miss it and turn right before the top of the steps.

    Good thing you weren’t wearing a full face helmet, you might have died! Or had a serious neck injury!!

    ooouuch that looks painful. I’m sure they look steeper when your at the top of them though

    1st thing … Hope your ok mate – i mean ur mate of course ..
    Its a nasty section to be face planting for sure. Rocky & rooty by that stream.

    2nd thing … Why the need to carry so much around such a short trail centre?
    A tube,pump, chaintool & spare link … maybe bottle of water ..all easilly carried on bike or in pockets.

    Anyways. Good pics. Heal quickly mate.

    I like how he avoided the perfectly rideable 3ft wide steps and went for the rock sticking out 🙂

    why was he carrying a second helmet – for when he broke the first one?

    I bet his shower was a bit stingy this morning 🙁

    its not a spare helmet is it though? looks like elbow or knee pads to me. Should have been wearing them though! 😀

    Who wants to go riding with a bloody inner tube, multi tool, pump and water bottle in their pockets?
    Do you go up to riders on the trail and ask them what they have a camelbak on? I bet you don’t, so why would it be acceptable on here?
    FFS stop worrying about what others choose to do and mind your business.

    Importantly is the bike Ok ?!

    Seriously though hope he’s ok.

    Still can’t think where those steps are.

    Agree with wrecker. I wouldt want anything in my pockets. And as theres no room for a water bottle on my frame so i find a small camelback is the most practical option.

    Other than the pads stuffed into the back his camelback dosent look that big, not that he needs to justify it anyway.

    Still can’t think where those steps are.

    If there the ones im thinking of its when you go past the pay booth for the forest drive, then up the steep section then cross a small timber bridge and its literally 10m on your left. The stream (or river bed) will be to your right

    I’ve been trying to work out where this could be.

    I think it is on the lower section by the stream. You can miss this very easily when riding it, as the trail just swoops round. But if it’s the bit I’m thinking of, there’s a shoot up a little hill and then down these steps back onto the trail, while the more obvious trail just carries on past it.
    If it is there, then it is a lot steeper than those pics suggest but I thought it was rockier and the steps weren’t so obvious as the look.
