Ummm you know where i stand on this,if you like flat flowy,fast,rocky STEEP almost uncontrolable downhill then join in and have some fun.
Haydn came up last weekend and one of our guys showed us a track that i never even knew about and ive been riding here for years,Haydn and me have had a little convo and have decided to "sculpt" this natural trackinto something a little special and from what we have come up with it aint no major build,just a day or two and we will have something to tell all about,its around a 4mins track with a push up of about 15/20 mins.
Sound good? Lets make a day of it then.

Here`s a screenshot with some expert drawring on to show the mainly used tracks,the 2 tracks you see top are the 2 longest 3mins and 4-5 mins,all these tracks have their little offshoots so really speaking theres lots of possible linesto ride,also i have only done one track in the forrestry near the resevoir,there are shedloads of little fast tracks dotted about in these woods.There is also an "epic" track that starts at the top where the 2 big tracks start that runs all the way over to Cwmcarn Freeride which is about 25 mins of rocky paths,this track also takes you over to the Quarry,The Carling Run and Twm Balam which are all good riding spots.
The XC riding overthese hills and woods is also good for those that dont ride the big bouncers :D .
