    That looks excellent – will just have to work out how to get to the start point . . .

    Thanks

    You don’t want to ride in the black Mountains. They’re horrible. it’s all rubbish.

    I am going to be staying at Felindre near Hay-on-Wye over Easter weekend and MrsJay says I can take a bike 😀 – AND she says I can play out all day on the Saturday. I’ve bought the maps – can anyone suggest a route? I will need to start from the village as I dare not suggest I have the car as well.
    Better still anyone fancy a spot of guiding?

    is it very dry up there at the moment? as I know the peat at the top is a very fragile environment, so bikes can actually knacker it up for decades if its gopping up there.

    Myndd Du DH woo… Its a bike eater in places: loads of ugly loose rocks from what I remember, I wouldn’t ride it without a recce. My son did a Dragon practice day there once. The one guy who turned up on a hardtail did one run and went home shaking his head!

    Park up here, push over the stream bridge(West)and theres a stand of trees just ahead. Thats the bottom of the track. I’m not sure what permissions you need. Please don’t ride alone or irresponsibly.

    I won’t ride it alone or like a loon.
