Coed Y Brenin Mountain Biking (15/16 August 2009)

What an outstanding weekend. The weather was rubbish... see last photo of the most benign sky we encountered over the weekend... and being able to borrow tent pegs to replace those safely stored in Peter's loft averted a potential accommodation debacle, but this was right up there in the outdoor fun/fear/excitement top 10.

The reviews of the trails talk about the adrenalin rush... they did not exaggerate - although they do not dwell on the 45 minutes of climbing required to get to the highest section. There were some fantastic bits of single track and in places only the knowledge that the trails had been built for bikes convinced you that they were do-able.

Steve pretending all is well!

Notice how Dave releases his gonads when Steve is safely behind the camera....

A chink in the clouds... on the rare occasion when we were below them rather than in them!

"The Beast" 38.2k of Mountain Biking delight.
