Anybody from N Wales here who rides the Coed y Brenin / Marin / Penmachno tracks regularly?

Haven't done Penmachno yet, but that's one of the next on the list
Not done the Marin trail yet, but live in Dolgellau so go to CyB regularly. Great all-weather trail centre, gotta love the Dragon's Back trail.
I've only done Penmachno in the wet, and the first half was fantastic. Very fast sections and relatively easy climbs, but found the second half a bit too demanding in the wind and hail. Take plenty of food if you're doing the longer of the two loops! When I limped back to the car I ate a full-breakfast sandwich in about 10seconds lol.
