- Skyline – Full loop
I took 3hrs the day after the Kona Mash Up in November. High winds and rain but it did clear to show some lovely views.
One or maybe 2x energy bars. 2Ltr Camel Bak with no pouches. 1x the usual under seat tool / inner tube / multi tool kit I have on every ride.
You might get 'phone reception out there in parts too.
Nice to be out in he mountains on your own.Posted 8 years agonjee20Subscriber
I dunno, I think it's worse if you do the Wall starting from the old centre, the first 15 minutes or so are really really boring, that whole fireroad bit. It's still pretty crap doing W2! I do have a short attention span too, we may not have proper mountains in the south, but you don't just plod along a very slight incline on a fireroad for 15 minutes either!Posted 8 years agobackhanderMember
Bit like mountain biking really
If real mountain biking is mainly fire roads with a little "nibble" of singletrack, you can keep it.Posted 8 years ago
I don't mind a little fire road climbing (a la the wall) but descending? WTF?
Maybe I'm spoiled with afan and cwmcarn so close. I did the gorlech at brechfa recently and there's a lot of fire road on that (comparitively). I'd like to go again to try the black but wouldn't go out of my way to ride the red again.glenpMember
Well no. I rather meant that mountain biking is all sorts of things and not the same every time. A long slog the length of the South Downs Way with no singletrack at all or a furious trail centre day of man-made twisties. Or lots of other things too. I just don't see why it has to be action-packed or nothing – I quite like fresh-air-packed, or time-to-think-packed, every once in a while.Posted 8 years ago
