Recommend me a Welsh Trail centre
A friend (madjak)and I are looking into a Welsh trail centre trip in a months time, we’ve both been riding on and off for quite a few years, but spend most of our time riding natural trails in the Swindon and Chiltern areas.
Looking for trails that push us a little, whilst still being fun.
I’ll be mincing round on a 120mm Soul and he’ll be on a Commencal Meta riding with a bit more skill.
Looking at the mtbwales site Arfan would be the obvious choice as it’s the closest, but looks like lots of the trails are being rebuilt, so next thought was Brechfa…Posted 5 years agomusttryharderMember
So for the red trails at Brechfa or Nant-y-arian (which appeals because it’s near Aberystwyth were I went to Uni), what sort of features are we talking, are there jumps and drops etc, or is it mainly just twisty singletrack.
Would consider Forest of Dean too, how’s it compare to the welsh stuff?
Plan is to do a big ride on Saturday, stay overnight and do a short blast on Sunday.Posted 5 years agoryanctjMember
Afan is well worth the visit, The Wall and White’s are fully open and brilliant, only Skyline is rerouted I believe and it’s still running in some form. I would combine White’s Wall with a visit to the new Garw trails which are only the next valley over.
Brechfa is really good but Afan tips it for me if I had to choose. No facilities at Brechfa either.Posted 5 years agomadjakMember
Ridden the stuff at FoD and looking for something a bit bigger. Would love to do Coed y but that will have to wait till I have time to get over there.
Heard some good things about Afan, good suggestions. Will do them all. Main thing is that they’re all not too tricky on a hardtail.Posted 5 years agotomsticklandMember
Go and do W2 at Afan (the Wall + White’s Level). It was all open when I was there a few weeks ago.
Otherwise, moving north there’s Brechfa (2 big trails), Cilycwm (small but good), Nant y arian, Climach X, Coedybrenin, Penmachno, Betwyscoed, Llandegla.
