Fed up with gloopy mud and bord of loal trails!
Thinking of heading down the M4 to Cwmcarn!

Is it safe to go on my own (if i fall off)

What tyres would be best i have the following;

Kenda Nevegals 2.1 (came with bike)
Panaracer razer xc 2.1 (my summer tyres)
Panaracer trailrakers 1.95 (my gloop tyre for winter)

Any help much appreciated!

    Nevegals are ideal for CwmCarn. You won't need the trailrakers for sure as it's never muddy there.

    Arguably riding alone is never safe but at least at CC you're never more than a couple of km rolling down a road from the car park...

    Aside from the odd patch here and there you wont see any mud at Cwm. You'll be fine riding solo, espeicially at the weekend, if you go down someone will come along within mins.

    Thanks people,going to be doing the twrch trail and figured the nevegals would be the best bet, i best get them changed for weekend! and make sure bike gets good service.
    Looking at the weather though i'll be wearing very warm gear, wind chill down to -5

    I'd definately take someone with you, in the same car, so if the worse happens you can always get home.
