Come along to enjoy a day of mountain biking at Llandegla's amazing Forest Trail Centre.
Famed for its fast flowing trails in picturesque pine forests, smooth single track, man made berms and natural contoured, flowing terrain will leave your breathless and tired but nonetheless happy and smiling.
The day will be spent doing the Black trials, a fast flowing 18km trail with a couple of moderate drop offs, berms (banked corners) and small jumps which can be easily rolled over (jumping not required).
Parking at the trail centre cost £5 for all day. The trails and all other facilities are free.

What to bring
- A good quality mountain bike. Preferably full suspension, but hardtails are fine.
- Puncture repair kit (or better still a spare inner tube) and tyre levers. Also any special tools that your bike needs.
- Food - bring small snacks such as chocolate bars and energy foods.
- Plenty of water (minimum 2lts)
- Eye protection - impact from a bee, grit or even a fly at speed is extremely unpleasant, sunglasses may do if not made of glass and not too shaded.
- Clothing: choose suitable clothes and footwear for the weather forecast and time of year. You will be exercising so lightweight layered clothing is best. Shorts are best even in rain, as they allow free movement of your legs. Jeans are useless if it rains but tracksuit bottoms need to be not too baggy or they may snag in the chain and cause an accident. You'll need trainers or similar with grippy soles for standard pedals.
- Cyclist's Helmet - Outdoorlads policy asks you to wear a helmet to events. A full face helmet would be a good idea for those intending to descend quickly.
- Pads. Optional, but knee and elbow pads can stop a fall from ruining your day.
- Bag you will need a small day-sack (or panniers on your own bike) to carry essential clothing, water and an emergency snack.
Food & drink
There's an excellent café at the trail centre with an extensive food & drinks menu. That said many of us bring our own lunch and just grab a brew - up to you :).
For the trails however please bring plenty of water and snacks for during the ride.
