Truly a Beast.....

Review:
Superb. All of the downhill/singletrack sections are awesome, but the long fire road climb is a bee-atch, and there's an unnecessary 6 mile fire road loop before the first Addams family section that can be avoided by pushing up the road. Have done it 4 times this year, but last time did the MBR morning/Dragons Back afternoon(clocked 26 miles in total). We were battered. Hard work but worth it.

Summary:
Great In Parts, But Not As Good As It Used to Be

Review:
Rode the Beast on 16/05/08 for the third time in the last year, they're currently doing work on the 'Adams Family' sections, which unfortunately is not making the trails any better. What was once challenging singletrack (the rooty section) has now been surfaced with a smooth finish. It's fast, but no longer technically challenging. It looks like the whole section is going to be finished this way.

Recently revisited this on 07/07/09 and have bumped my mark up by one. The Adams Family sections still aren't as good as the used to be, but the rest of the trail is enjoyable none the less (take some money for the cafe half way round - only open on weekends). The downhill sections have good flow & the odd jump here and there.

A fun ride that is enjoyalble with company

Review:
I enjoy this ride especially the Adams family section. Fast and exhilarating. Climbs do go on for some time but once at the top it is worth it!

Was a long ride, although some good singletrack but quite a bit of uphill fire roads
