I’d be happy with Cannock or Dalby. Realise Dalby is out of the way for a lot on this forum but there’s plenty of riding to be done Sheffield way if people were going to stay the night and break the journey up with more riding ?

What about Innerleithen, Glentress, Lakes or Kielder for those of us who live in the North of the UK ;)

Apart from the main Brechfa trails I have created some ebike specific trails which should test out your steep uphill technical riding skills. The ebike trails can be ridden in both directions so it will be a bit different to what your used to and double the fun. Short cranks will be essential ;)

Living in Essex these are all new to me and a long way away, however, I’m up for whatever the majority go with and plan to join them all in the coming months

There is plenty of accommodation available close to the trails if you want come up the day before? Trails in Wales | Welsh Holiday Cottages | Brechfa Carmarthenshire is less than 1/2 a mile away from the trail start point in Byrgwm.

I am more than happy to guide you around on the Saturday late morning/early afternooon for a ‘pre ride’ as well if you wish?

Hi all,

The trails in Brechfa are a mixed bag of machine made trails and also man made off piste trails. There is a Black run that it is not really a Black, more a Red with chicken runs around the few small drops that are on the machine made trails.

As I have not ridden with any of you before I want to make sure that everyone who is coming is going to have a good time. I really do not want to take you down a trail that you may feel is beyond your skill set. The bottom line is if you are comfortable on a Red run then you will be fine on all the trails at Brechfa. If you are not comfortable on a Red please let me know in advance so I can plan the route of the ride around this.

Also, do you want an epic long ride that may require a second battery?
Just let me know so I can build into the route a divert back to the car park for a ‘Battery Change’ to save you carrying your spare in your pack. Personally, I am not into carrying a pack and place everything I need tools, food, drink etc on my bike.

Like I said in my previous post. I am more than happy to guide you around on the Saturday the 8th, late morning/early afternooon for a ‘pre ride’ as well if you wish?
Just let me know.
See my previous post above re accommodation or just search for Brechfa accom

@Rob Hancill I'll be there.

Also @Kiwi in Wales I'm very comfortable on red trails so anything you have planned I'm cool with, but i don't have a spare battery so I'll have to be conservative with what mode i use it i think.

I’ll be there. Reds are fine by me.

One battery here too, and it’s a Bosch so 20ish Miles is my limit.

Anyone want to car share? @Dax? I’ll be coming your way regardless. Am I fuck paying to get into Wales...
