Trail Community

The MBR Trail at Coed-y-Brenin is a real favourite; it's got a great mix of classic CyB rocky gnarlyness, fast, flowing singletrack, new and contemporary features and sections to bring it up to date with modern riding styles.

You'll be riding over bedrock, negotiating loose, rocky, climbs and descents, swooping round berms, finding a rhythm over huge rollers, flying down steps, dropping into the 'Cavity' and getting spat out the exit with as much style as you can muster! It's a blast that puts a big grin on your muddy face!

This trail is severe with unavoidable flyoffs and while you can roll down them all, you might want to ask yourself if your skills are up to it.
