MTB Gwydyr Mawr (Marin) (39144)

Event Overview

CYMRAEG:

Mae llwybr beicio mynydd Gwydir Mawr gynt o'r enw Marin Trail yn llwybr beicio mynydd priodol ym mhob ystyr o'r tymor. Mae dringo mawr, disgyniadau mawr, cerdyn sbon wych a golygfeydd gwirioneddol wych yn gwneud y llwybr hwn i gofio.

Mae'r rhan fwyaf, ond nid pob un, o'r dringiau ar ffyrdd coedwigoedd a thraciau sy'n rhoi amser i chi gymryd golygfeydd mynyddoedd eryri, ac mae'r holl ddisgyniadau ar y badell fach melys. Mae'r singletack yn amrywio o dynn, technegol a chreigiog iawn i fod yn agored ac yn rhyfeddol, o goedwig tywyll i llinellau agored.

SAESNEG:

The Gwydir Mawr mountain bike trail, formerly known as the Marin Trail, is a proper mountain bike trail in every sense of the word.  Big climbs, long descents, brilliant singletrack and truly awesome scenery make this a trail to remember.

Most, but not all, of the climbs are on forest roads and tracks giving you time to take in the views of the mountains of Snowdonia, and all of the descents are on the sweetest of singletrack. The singletack varies from very tight, technical and rocky to wonderfully open and flowing - from dark forest to exposed ridgelines.

During the day some of our other members will have taken part in the Portmeirion 6th Trail Fell Run (a 6km cross country run).  If you're attending the social this evening there will be the opportunity to toast their success.

What to bring

Apart from your bike remember the following:.

  1. Puncture repair kit (or better still a spare inner tube) and tyre levers. Also any special tools that your bike needs.
  2. Food - bring small snacks such as chocolate bars and energy foods.
  3. A cycling bottle attached to your bike and plenty of water (minimum 2lts)
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Cyclist's Helmet - Outdoorlads policy asks you to wear a helmet events.
  7. 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

Plenty to drink, lots of snacks and a packed lunch are the order of the day :)
