A nice gentle XC ride

A nice gentle ride out where you can find some good roots and turns. If you search hard, or speak to the nice staff in the shop, you will find some of the little gems such as the more DH style short run that runs down the whole valley, some...

Fun place to hang out at

Southampton Bike Park is a fun day out for a mess around, with plenty of jumps and pumps to keep you smiling. As it is a small push up you're able to get in as many runs as you want during the day, and it stays fairly quiet. It can...

Some fun features along the way. Lots of berms scattered along but I found some of them to be quite tight to get out of so a bit akward. Loads of random rollers along the way to try and jump. The final descent is really quick to get back to...

A really fun trail with a couple of different lines. They have made good use of a small here. The final descent is awesome, with tables on the black line and some fast berms on the red. Fun to just session over and over

Some good fun sections with a couple of good berms. Good for a few laps. The trail is quite flat and nothing particularly technical, but a fun lap overall. Worth the visit if you're in the area

Fun track

This is a fun pump track/bmx track thats easy to roll meaning there are a lot of kids that ride there and tend to sit on the roll in. Great track for the area though, and the locals all seem very friendly. A nice jump for anyone who likes lots...

Fun rooty singletrack

Only ridden the red route but it brought plenty of smiles with it's fast singletrack. A lot of up down and not too much descending but this is made up for with the amount of roots everywhere. A nice bermy bit towards the end to finish off

Fun little pump track

A good pump track to practice your skills on. You can make a couple of different line choices and can be ridden by riders of most abilities

Plenty of descending to keep you grinning

Cwm Rhaeadr was recommended to me by our guide whilst riding in Afan, and for good reason! The trail starts with a really long climb, but it is all on fire road making it a bit easier. As you get near to the top of the climb you reach a...

Amazing range of trails

Having recently done a review for Afan when I had only had the chance to ride Blue Scar, I felt it was now appropriate to do a new review to include Penhydd and Y Wal. Everytime I leave Afan I am always looking for the next possible moment...

A beautiful way to spend your holiday

Staying at Afan Lodge really did turn this MTB trip in to a holiday. The lodge is incredible, with breathtaking views, exceptional food (very large portions), and the kindest, most helpful staff imaginable. I have been on a lot of MTB trips over the last couple of years but...

Fun pump track

Lordship loop is a really fun, fairly long pump track. It is good to see how far you can make it round without touching the peddles which is quite tricky on this track. It also has a small skate park next to it which is quite fun. Definitely worth the...

Plenty of rock

What haldon lacks in berms it makes up for with undulating fun. It keeps you rolling nice and fast across the rocky terrain. The red isn't too hard at all here so can be ridden by most providing you have some off road skill. My favourite thing about haldon that...

Some fun descents

Ashton court and leigh woods trails are very much the same so can be looped together to make a good ride. They have small jumps/rollers scattered around, and a couple of really fun descents that swoop you round going down longer than you think is possible for the...

A must do...soon!

Bikepark wales is probably my new favourite day of riding to date. Sadly due to the time we arrived we didn't get to try all the runs but the ones we did were excellent. So much flow, tons of berms and just so much fun. We didn't have uplift passes...

A nice day out on the bike

I visit rushmere quite often but generally not if i'm looking for a big ride. The loop that's been set out is not worth following as it only has one or two short sections to bother with. The first is a berm run which you can find near the visitors...

I usually visit sherwood once or twice a year at least even though it's quite a drive as something always takes you back! The new development to the freeride zone has improved it a lot. It has a nice flowy bermy runs with a few rock drops along the way....

Berms, berms and berms!

Chicksands literally has something for everyone, right from bmxers to dh's! The dual slalom is my favourite thing to ride here. Full of plenty of berms and some small tables. There are jumps of all sizes here, and some very big drops which are probably best watched than ridden......

Rocky fun

Although there is only a blue trail it is definitely worth the visit. It has some good descents with a lot of up and down all day! For anyone that prefers a bike park or groomed trail this won't be the place for you!

Literally fun for everyobe

Any rider that doesn't normally ride a blue or green you would be gutted to not ride them at brechfa. They are by far some of the best flowy trails i have ridden. They keep your speed so well that you will be grinning the whole way down. ...

Bedgebury is a really nice day out and can suit a wide range of riders as it is not too technical but can be a lot of fun ridden fast. There are a couple of really big climbs but you always feel a sense of satisfaction at the top! Definitely...

A great, flowy trail. By far the best trail centre I have been. I rode both the blue and red and am now desperate to go back! Both are all weather trails, with fun berms and jumps to keep you excited. The red has some great boardwalk sections along the...
