- Whats the fastest you've done the Beast at Coed y Brenin?
it is great fun, its easily the best trail centre ive ever done, we had it planned beforehand to go llandegla on the way back so we did push it pretty hard i must say so we could fit llandegla in
even pushing it, its easily the best trail centre out there, sort of doesnt feel like a trail centre imo, a real ‘out there’ feel to it…some great great fun sections tooPosted 4 years ago
jeez – 1hr 50 for the kill, that is some going
yeah looks like we’d be near enough top 20ish with that time, and i know for defo we werent racing around, we took in the views at the top etc and had a few mechanical stops (nothing major though) but we did stop for 10mins to have a few flapjacks
that said, even going full pelt and pushing it to the max no chance on this planet id do sub 2hrs, that is seriously seriously seriously fast given the nature of the route (obstacles,climbs,skills needed to ride that quick all the time)Posted 4 years ago
just wondering, this isnt willy waving, although the cynical amongst you may believe so 😉 but im genuinely interested!
was just looking through some routes on garmin site etc from a few weeks back, me and a pal went one weekday when it was quiet and did llandegla on the way back (shattered, legs gone etc, great day out mind!)
just interested as the map suggests 3-6hours for the beast
and i was very shocked that we did it in 2hours 41mins including a break for flapjacks once!
id been a few years back and never thought id get near the 3 hour mark let alone under it by 20mins
so whats the quickest anyone here has done the beast loop?

i dont race nor do i use strava, interesting reading though the strava, perhaps i should take it up for a go, looking at that id at least not finish last in racing!
its all about racing your friends right!?!
ps i must re-iterate that CYB is indeed a whole heap of fun, whether raced or bimbling along!
i dont find any of the sections boring TBH even long gravely wide paths, as they all lead to something great at coedy, thats the beauty each climb gives a great reward!Posted 4 years ago
