The Cli Machx trail near Machynlleth is a 15km round trip, with 9km of built single track with compressions, rock slab drop offs and beautiful flowing turns.
The last descent is the longest in Wales and features rocky jumps; watch out for the 'eye of the needle'; a huge jump with a narrow landing between two trees on the other side.
The finale is a sequence of eight huge berms following quickly after each other. Hit them high enough and fast enough and they ride really well, but don't look down!
