Coed Y Brenin is a breathtaking and challenging mountain bike venue.

Nothing beats the feeling of freedom that you get from riding at full speed through a challenging mountain bike trail. Even the aching limbs, the bruises and scrapes you might incur as a result of falling after taking a track a bit too heavy make it all worthwhile. But when it comes to getting on your bike and going, the choice of trails available in the UK is vast and exciting – these are the Bikefusion top 3 which are just begging to be explored and enjoyed.

Coed y Brenin – North Wales
When it comes to perfect trails, stunning scenery and a spectacular, purpose-built state of the art eco visitor centre there’s only one place that can offer it all at its best – Coed y Brenin. Set in the beautiful Snowdonia Nation Park with fantastic view of the mountain and Cadair Idris, Coed y Brenin is not just a visual treat, so don’t let its gorgeous views fool you. Under the canopy of trees is a warren of all-weather singletrack that’ll test even the most experienced rider to their limits. The first forest developed for Mountain Biking, Coed y Brenin knows exactly what to throw at you, and with its network of downhill trails including the incredible False Teeth technical challenge you won’t be short of adrenaline rushes.
