    they're cut in the hill, I've had a nose at 1 or 2 sections - not on the bike before anyone shouts!!

    I think it's all planned to open in january
  • Any idea if the new trails will be proper or will they be more berm-athons?

    from what I've seen they look to be very similar to what's at CC already, but the trails weren't layed - if they are going to put down the same stuff as they have done on the DH - but they look good
  • If you use Facebook, MTB Ranger South Wales posts updates on trails. He answers questions too, when he gets the chance! He is pretty busy with all that's going on at the moment though.

    Three bikes: a muddy one, a fast one and a nostalgic one.

  • Don't we all :)

    Dude is the only feedback we get from Forrestry in any meaningful way, been impressed with his attitude and openess at supplying good info!
  • Looks like there will be a very long descent (possibly longer than the final descent of the Twrch) on the new trail... we were trying to figure out where it goes the other day, but it looks like it goes from pretty much top to bottom!
  • I've not long moved to Pontypridd. Have been looking at places to ride for a while and I've come across a few parks with good reviews like Cwn Carn and Bike Park Wales, but struggling to find out where there are nice forest tracks and places just to chill out. I love going to bike parks but it's nice to get away on steady trails now and again. I moved down here from the Highlands. The tracks at Fort William used to be my second home lol
