My god! What's with that music?...I can't believe people enjoy listening to that stuff. Would've liked to watch it but had to turn it off after about 5secs.

that looks very similar to a trail by my place, it's amazing how the camera makes things look flatter :lol:

Nice vid! I went up there myself when I was at Bangor Uni. I was a complete novice back then however and never dared to try any of the drops on the HT i was riding!

The angle makes it look sooo much flatter than it actually is. That drop near the top of the track is at least a few foot and the jump at the bottom isn't exactly small from what I can remember. I will have to get back up there with the Spesh at some point and give it a proper bash.

ah awesome dude - yeah it totally flattens it out, the top bit is really steep and the drops/jumps aren't exactly small, like you say! The step down at the bottom has to be about 10ft

ben - really fun track, if you're ever around my neck of the woods and fancy some fun downhill, there's a load of local trails i'd be happy to show you :)

Cool :) I'm home for a weekend before Xmas but weather could be crap by then, would be easy to drop in on the way back to Cardiff though!

I love to ride more natural/lesser known tracks! Makes everything a bit more fun because the track hasn't become a motorway!

Aye definitely, some of the local stuff around here is really tech/loose/steep in places. Good fun, none of this cwmcarn trail centre rubbish ;)

TBH I agree lol! Cwmcarn is just more accessible!

I still have to rely on others (like Kev) to show me where stuff is round here!

Went exploring at the weekend though and found some awesome lines (completely unridden) through a forest, think we need to take some shovels!
