Areas like “Llandegla” and “Coed y Brenin” in North Wales have seen a great benefit from the huge financial investments made in these areas, with the development of a new network of mountain bike cross-country trails and the new facilities at those locations.For something with a little more of an adrenalin rush, it was recently announced that the “Llechwedd quarry” in Blaenau Ffestiniog has been given the go ahead to be developed for a dedicated mountain bike downhill area and visitor centre. This should make it one of the best equipped downhill specific areas within the UK. As the organisers are aiming to make the centre near Plas Talywaenydd a hub of an international-standard network of mountain biking trails to compliment those in nearby Coed y Brenin, like many seen in Europe and the USA.Cycling around this sparsely populated area of Wales is a fantastic experience, as even if you are planning to ride a mixture of road and off-road riding you can’t help but enjoy the surrounding beautiful environment.
