Cracking ride with the boys today even though it as cold and hard work in the snow, nearly 900 mtr of climbing and over 30km in all, when we did get onto tarmac roads in the odd place it still didn’t make life easy as they were covered in ice, but by the end I was feeling quite tired and my hand were freezing.

A Very Hot Ride Around The Dyfi

FB_IMG_1501062540319

Had a ride up around the Dyfi with James and dad, I must admit the couple of times I’ve ridden there I wasn’t impressed as a lot of the trails are up hill and there is a lot of up hill to get to them, but James said he would show us some of the better tracks, so we headed up the enduro climb which was long but not to steep, I can’t remember the names of the trails but they were brill, steep some rocky and some loamy but great fun.

Shouldn’t moan about nice weather but it was really hot and sweaty we did around 25km and over 800m of climbing, when we got back to the van James said we would go and have a look at Dyfi Bike Park which isn’t open to the public yet, so we drove to the bottom and walked up to the top, we came across Ollie Davey doing some work on one of the bridges, we asked if it was OK to have a nose about which he said would be alright if we kept out of the way, as we walked back down we looked up some of the trails they had built, Ollie said there would be a few graded black and one red, well there certainly not trail centre blacks and reds, they make every DH centre I’ve been to look like a  walk in the park.

Huge jumps massive step downs and also mega steep, no good looking for a line you can roll on this track, don’t know if the other ones would be as techie, James was very excited by the track, the picture below really doesn’t show how steep it is the top was around 10 foot rough rocky near vertical slab, it was that steep you couldn’t walk down it.
