Antur Stiniog: new downhill and freeride centre for North Wales
Video preview of new MTB centre coming to Snowdonia this summer.
Doddy headed to Snowdonia recently, to get a sneak preview ride on the downhill trails at Antur Stiniog, a new mountain bike centre in Blaenau Ffestiniog with Neil Donogue, Alex Rafferty and Cal Jelley in tow.
They’re still a work in progress, but our test-riders were impressed. You can see the boys riding the trails in the video below.
Doddy said: “The D-Line trail is a super fast flowing trail with rollers, jumps, drops and rock features as well as some of the best berms we’ve ridden.
“The black-rated runs are steeper, rockier and more technical. They carve down the steeper face of the hill with a striking view of the Glodfa quarry, the town of Blaenau and incredible scenery beyond.”
The downhill trails will be opening in July. A full visitor centre will be opening later, and there’ll also be an uplift and cross-country trails.
Read the full feature in MBUK 278, on sale 1 June!
