After getting a dry week and decided to make the most of the good weather and dry trails, today I visited Cwmcarn in south Wales, it's my second visit there and it's very good to ride there, singlespeed is not suitable for this as it's hilly and rocky so I took the geared Cannondale, it take about 1 hour 40 mins to do a loop but second loop took longer as I was stopping taking pics of these trails, so here some pics ( I think I saw 'Bontyfiend' passing at the car park on a modern Specialized MTB, was that you there?)

Question is.....did you do the free ride section at the top with the tunnel or the twisty roller coaster :?:
I might well pop over next week for a crack if the weather stays dry, last time i went was about 2 months ago for a night ride in the pooring rain, still fun tho :wink:
