Last weekend 7 of us headed from Wiltshire to North Wales for what promised to be a good weekend on the bikes.
Friday, 2 of the gang went straight to Coed y Brenin while the rest of us headed for Cadair Idris and a grueling climb in temperatures just shy of 30C.
It was hot and hard work but the views were staggering and the descent simply brilliant!
This was the second time for me and I was keen to check out a short bridleway on the return leg and its fair to say it didn’t disappoint!
Saturday saw 7 tired campers hit a muggy Penmachno at an agreed later time, that almost back fired on us! One of the guys had a free hub issue and we didn’t leave any time to get to a bike shop on Saturday evening.
Luckily, we bumped into Tom Hutton (MTB Guiding) at Coed y Brenin who arranged to meet us Sunday morning and loan us a wheel. What a gent!
So Sunday, all of us made our way around the Dyfi Forest, around the Climach-X trail north of Machynlleth where we rode the epic final descent, but not before exploring some of the Welsh Gravity Enduro stages still widely used but not sign posted in the forest.
We had a cracking weekend and I want to get back to the Dyfi Forest ASAP..
