Penmachno Loop 2

1. Antur Stiniog
A relatively new world class downhill track, it recently hosted the British Downhill series first round which saw the best downhill riders in Britain come to the amazing facility to race. It has 4 downhill trails and a pump track which makes the whole facility able to be ridden by a beginner all the way up to the best riders in the world.

The uplift system runs as slick as clockwork, at the bottom there is a café that sells the best bacon baps in the country and also a shop when the time comes that you break your bike.


2. Llandegla
One of the best trail centres in the whole of the U.K, it’s different to Antur Stiniog because you have to ride to the top of the trail meaning it’s more of a endure course rather than downhill. With more than 50 kilometres of trails, you will be more than happy with the amount of riding there is.

Anyone can ride here, there is a green trail which even your five year old could ride. It also has a great café to have a bite to eat after your hard day’s ride.


3.Coed y Brenin
Very similar to Llandegla but with a wider array of trails as Coed y Brenin having over 140km of trails which ranges from beginner level green to black diamond. It’s a great place to get your mountain biking fix.

Overall, Coed-y -Brenin is one of the best trail centres in the country.


4. The Marin
Different to Llandegla and Coed-Y-Brenin because it isn’t a trail centre it’s just a trail where there are no facilities apart from a car park. It’s all about the trail, built about 15 years ago and mainly a natural trail with lots of steep climbs, but to balance them out, it also offers some of the best single-track you can find without going to a trail centre.

Hundreds of people ride the Marin every week which means the trails are constantly changing.


5. The Penmachno Marin
A trail that has seen many great riders and with 30km of trail to battle, it’s not a short ride but it has the perfect balance of climbs and descents.

Perfect for anyone who is serious about the sport, with many classing it as an ‘old school’ track with very natural single track and forestry roads to take you to the top of the descents.
