- Real ale wobble 2012
It’s as “gnarly” as you want to make it, you could always ride your bit hit mutha-hucking freeride ready mountain quashing machine down the stairs in the neuff arms, that’d be gnarly*10+1.
On a serious note – No, it’s not gnarly, it’s a social beer drinking event with a nice ride out in the hills and perhaps we’ll ride a bit…… fall over, ride a bit…fall over, ride a bit….fall over, etc…etc.

There are three or four enduro-style descents which are optional, bit Dyfi-like if you know what I mean. But on the whole, as somafunk says. It’s got a great, chilled out atmosphere all weekend (best experienced if you can stay over and get pissed in the Neuadd Arms after the event).Posted 5 years agosomafunkSubscriber
Neuff – Doh! should’ve been Neuadd arms……..sometimes names get mixed in the heat of battle and i file something away that makes little sense afterwards.
And this guy below is King Wobble, look at him, he’s got an official microphone and everthing – dy’a think he cares a jot bout gnarly options?.

Last year it was a wobble round in the forest with optional boomgnar medium sections along the way.
They’re using a totaly new route this year though.
If you want to make it more allmountain light drink more ale. 🙂
The real harcore challenge is trying to get to the bar while the whole pub is trying to make the floor collapse while jumping up and down to Dangerous Dave. 😀Posted 5 years agooldgweggMember
Like others have said, its more of a social ride, but the food and ale made for a good night after the ride. It does what it says on the tin: piss-up on a bike. When I did it about 7 years ago, it was half boggy mud, a few firetracks, a few woodsy sections, with added beer stops.
If you want something more hardcore, you could do the Horse vs Man, organised by the same people.Posted 5 years agoNickSubscriber
Camping on the dogshit covered roadside verge or flooded rugby pitch, washing with a cold water hosepipe, queing for the one working but blocked and flooded toilet after 10 pints and a curry, crying.
