. Machynlleth Powys Wales
Fantastic mountain bike routes for all abilities right from the town centre of Machynlleth and purpose built single track in the Dyfi forest to the North. The Cli-machx trail opened in 2005 and is sited in the Dyfi forest. It's a 15km (approx. 9 miles) round trip, with 9km (approx. 5.5 miles) of built single track. The last descent is the longest in Wales and features many rocky jumps with the finale being a sequence of huge berms following quickly after each other. There is also plenty of free-riding in the forest that is not way-marked, so you will need a map. The Holey Trail bike shop in Machynlleth has maps of specific recommended routes in the Dyfi, and cross-country routes in the area. This is mostly intermediate level with some advanced level. Allow 2 hours. Please note, this is forest is used for motorsports about 5 weekends a year. No mountain biking on these days, we don't want anyone getting squished.
