(Coed Y Brenin Forest Park) Forest in the middle of Wales somewhere with a particularly strong association with mountain biking. Possibly the highest profile mounting biking center in the UK, in fact. It offers excellent purpose built routes incorporating things mountain bikers love like technical singletrack set in fabulous Welsh countryside.

I'd literally never ridden off-road before and hired a hardtail bike and went round with some mates - did the Red Bull Trail first - and even with no practice, skills or experience of any kind had a fantastic day. If you're curious about this sport, this is a great place to try it.

Notable trails (identified by corresponding sponsors' brands) at Coed Y Brenin include:
