  • MBWales - Superb trails for everyone
    Coed Llandegla the same way The 8km green route certainly isn t free from challenges but steady grades and wide trails leave more margin for error and inexperienced group riding Perfect for the gaggle of architects we saw having a great day or the several family groups and a Kona hire fleet means you ll be well taken care of bike wise The team have now added a superb red route and black sections to the tamer starter loop now and even the most experienced mountain bikers will come back grinning from ear to ear especially after the last set of jumps at the back of the centre In fact we enjoyed it so much we rode it twice getting back the second time in the pitch dark but with a stunning sunset over towards Snowdonia still fresh in our minds The stunning eco friendly centre with it s log construction and sky high open beam roof is not just another slightly cheesey Fat Face style marketing facia either We arrived at 7 30am when the sun was just firing it s first rays over the shoulder of Offa s Dyke and searing them into the forest at ankle height and we were still sat around having just one more coffee when they were trying to shut 12 hours later Huge screen showing the latest MTB DVDs big comfy couches and a fantastic bike shop to get your wallet itching or replace that vital thing that s still in the garage at home It really is an ideal place to get yourself together after driving there or collapse and relive the glory moments and nearly gory moments of the ride you ve just finished The centre also has a dedicated fully equipped meeting room for conferences presentations and even kids
