- Penmachno conditions ?
Looking for a venue for tomorrows ride, and have always enjoyed Pen, but a couple of our riding group rode there about 3 or 4 weeks ago and said it was so overgrown that it was borderline unrideable in places and certainly not a great deal of fun for that reason. Such a shame if Penmachno becomes extinct because in many ways it’s a great (if not a little soggy) trail. Anyone ridden there in the last couple of weeks or last few days that can report if it’s still a struggle ?Posted 4 years agobuzz-lightyearMember
Rode both loops as a big loop Thursday morning. Very nice old Skule xc trail very high proportion of singletrack Loop2 has an even narrower profile than loop 1 and there was the odd bramble hanging over the trail to catch the unwary. My 760mm bars fitted through the bushes ok.Posted 4 years agoScapegoatSubscriber
Loop 2 has some rampant brambles, but so many folk read on forums that it’s not worth riding because it’s overgrown, that it gets more overgrown.
Queen Boudicea had knives on her chariot wheels. Perhaps some sort of machete attachment could be found/developed? 29er specific, obviously.Posted 4 years ago
