Rostrevor or Castlewellan?
Not that I have, but couldn’t you do both? Having ridden Rostrevor a couple of times it’s not very technical, but there’s a good hour of climbing out of the car park. Do that trail in the morning, grab lunch, drop into Castlewellan on the way home (you’ll be driving past it anyway)Posted 4 years ago
Part of Castlewellan is closed for tree felling so would be shorter than usual?
Sorry that’s not very informative, just a suggestion!
We’re in the North visiting in-laws in Belfast and have a full day to ride as Kip Jr is being looked after by Granny.
Is the longer drive to Rostrevor worth it or are we better of with the shorter drive to Castlewellan. We don’t mind the extra miles if it’s worth it.
We are handy enough on bikes and confident on most of what the Welsh trail centres have as well as Scottish centres.
Info and advice appreciated please.Posted 4 years agoFactoryPhilMember
Rostrevor is a good spin out, the first fire road climb will get you prepared for the rest of it. Can’t compare to any Welsh trail centres as I haven’t been to any yet. The forecast is good for tomorrow so you’ll love it. Fast and flowing for a lot of it. As Benson 330 says, Castlewellan has some of the trails closed due to felling so it would probably be less than a hours riding for you. Enjoy your ride…Posted 4 years ago
Sorry guys missed the posts on this.
Rostrevor was great fun, big warm up slog but worth it. Swoopy and lots of chances to hone my air time! Highly recommended!
Castlewellan was also fun although loads was closed due to tree fungus, with more closures due, but this may be all done now. John at Life was great to chat to and gave loads of tips on how to get the best from the trails.
Again swoopy and fun with a bit of a sting in the tail that has apparently led to a few broken collarbones!
I think I preferred Rostrevor but in fairness we didn’t get to ride all of Castlewellan.Posted 4 years ago
