Worth a visit

I stayed at the Llanddeusat youth hostel and the manager there recommended this trail over Brechfa. Hmm, not sure why?! Its a great little trail, but nothing like Brechfa. That said, the great advantage of this one is that you can repeat it in a single trip and so great...

Addictive

Urban pump tracks are starting to spring up more and more. Unfortunately, some sre designed and built by non bikers and simply don't work so well. The Loop however, has gone from inception to completion with a wealth of enthusiasts and professionals bringing her to life. I've ridden the Loop...

Good for SE

The family green trail is largely fire raod, but the red that loops around the whole estate is nice single track with a (very) short black bit with an intersting beginning. The red is a England red, as opposed to Welsh or Scottish which are noticably harder. It's...

Off thr beaten track

A great hidden gem with lots of great singletrack. Once you get passed the initial climb, you get away from any road noise and really feel you are away from it all. This can be a bit eerie if on your own as it's not a busy place.

Lots to do

Good all rounder

The visitor centre is pleasant and there's a skills area just by the car park. The whole setting is nice and when I was there, the other users were friendly enough.
