Mountain Biking UK – Welsh Special Edition 2012

Leave a comment

Check out the Welsh Special Edition of Mountain Biking UK magazine on sale tomorrow – June 1st.

You’ll see our advert alongside a feature on the recent Fetish UK Gravity Enduro series round which took place at Coed Brenin over an extremely wet and wild weekend. Several of the teams taking part stayed with us – bet they were REALLY glad that they were in a nice, warm dry log cabin and weren’t camping!

There’s also the first feature with brilliant photos of the soon to be opened Antur Stiniog – One Big Adventure Gravity Bike Park alongside Llechwedd Slate Caverns at Blaenau Ffestiniog.  This is a wonderful new development with 4… yes 4, downhill / free ride trails, uplift service (with push up track coming soon for outside of uplift running hours) and a Visitor Centre with cafe, showers, bike shop and roof top viewing area.   We’ve also been told that there will be a separate free ride skills area built along side of the Visitor Centre.   There’s loads of parking on site.co

Get a flavour for what riding here is going to be like here

I also love this film of the build.  The music is no reflection of my thoughts about those who participate in hard-core downhill mtb… honest!

Next year, the new Tan-y-Grisiau Lake XC route will be opened.  This will be a spectacular ride!  Having walked the area regularly I can tell you that the scenery is immense!  Just west of Blaenau Ffestiniog and a short ride from Antur Stiniog it will be well worth the visit… great cafe by the dam too!

We were enormously proud to be asked by the Antur Stiniog Team to do a presentation, at the launch of Eryri One Big Adventure back in March, as a showcase of how local accommodation providers should cater for the mountain bikers visiting the area.  We were also featured on ITV Wales News as part of the project.

This new Centre is about 15 – 20 minutes drive from Cadair View Lodge Log Cabins and boosts the number of “official” trails that are within an hour’s drive of our accommodation to well over 20!  Far too many for ONE weekend’s stay!

And finally, Mountain Biking UK features the Wales Coast to Coast route which comes right past our front door!  If you are coming this way remember that we offer single night stays all year except Christmas and New Year.  We have a pub 5 minutes away for food (including breakfasts)  and “refreshment”.   Our famous Welcome Basket provides basic provisions (bread, milk, tea, coffee, etc. washing-up liquid, loo rolls) is standard with EVERY stay.  We can also have bed linen on your beds for when you arrive exhausted!  And don’t worry… we’ve seen a muddy shower or two in our time!

Enjoy the magazine and we look forward to seeing you very soon.
