Calling all Mountain Bikers! Looking for big mountain trails in an iconic location? Then head to Beics Brenin, the UK’s largest bike hire and trail centre set within the gorgeous Coed Y Brenin forest. Coed Y Brenin has something for everyone, with loads of family friendly trails to warm up on to extreme downhill and endurance loops that will test even the hardiest of riders.
Start your day off at the foundry, a great little skills park and training area with four separate areas to practice your skill or to warm up. There is a green trail, Yr Afon, and three blue trails, Minor, Minotaur Loop and Waterfalls, that would make a perfect day out for families and riders looking for pleasant riding. If you’re looking for something a little more serious then have a go at Cyflym Coch, Temtiwr and Dragons Back. These three reds will test your lungs, legs and your nerves as you face miles of technical single track high into the mountains. Once you’ve defeated the dragon’s back you should take a look at the three infamously scary Black routes, Tarw Du, MBR and the Beast of Brenin.
