Penmachno

Grade:
Distance: 30 km
Time: 2 - 3 hrs

You'll need your full aresenal of mountain biking skills for this one. Its quite a long and physical trail with challenging climbs and some great descents. The terrain is very rocky so make sure that your mountain bike is in good order and is up to the job. Its also recommended to run your tyre pressures slightly higher than normal to avoid punctures from the sharp rocks.

The trail holds water too so be preapred to get wet on this route, even if it hasn't rained for a while.

What stands out on this trail is how narrow some sections are so you really can't see what's coming! Great fun and plenty of surprises to keep you on your toes... make sure you're not half asleep riding this trail or you will be into the greenery in no time.

The Machno trail feels like a proper mountain bike trail, taking you out into a pretty remote valley with plenty of long distance views. Pack spare inner tubes, a waterproof jacket and all your enthusiasm for this one... enjoy!
