Trail description

The 12km Bodmin Beast blue (moderate) grade cycle trail aims to set the benchmark for singletrack trails in Cornwall. Suitable for cyclists with a moderate level of off-road experience and keen mountain bikers, this exciting trail explores the wooded slopes of the Cardinham Valley. You will encounter a number of technical climbs and descents, snaking single track trail and features such as tight bermed corners, small step downs, rollers and table tops. All features can be rolled over at a moderate speed. The trail is exposed to steep unfenced side slopes in places.

I had 2 fantastic laps (even if I did get over confident on lap 2 and have a spill) as an absolute beginner this was a nice challenge and great fun. My soft tail did not like the slippery up hill sections but handled the downhills perfectly.
