    Red trails I suppose but its more the distance you are comfortable with.

    the trail grading in England and Wales is a joke-Scotland and europe black often means black
    llandegla has a black section which i could probably ride on my BMX
    just ride the trail centres-they aint hard, get used to them and you'l do just fine
    Dont look at it-ride it! they are tools not f*cking ornaments

    my riding:

    Some of my Rides Data/maps:
  • if you intend to ride through the winter and are nw to MTB, then watch out... seemingly innocent trails can have a nasty way of rearing up and taking a chunk out of your ass! llandegla black will hurt you if youre cocky as will llandegla blue!

    I'm assuming you already have a decent level of bike fitness, but MTB fitness and road fitness are not the same thing. endurance and tech for what you want.
