just a link to the pink heifer route details for anyone who fancies a mad mission next time there down in brenin forest.Ive not done it myself but when i get a nice free day ill be getting down there to blast it!!Anyone here done it yet???
I was on the Forum ride with mtbbritain, Doug led the way so he,s the guy to ask. I was riding a Giant NRS4 at the time my fitness & skill took its toll. I would like to give it another go now I have a better bike and more confident.
The Pink Heiffer was the original route at CyB in the late 80's early 90's before there was a trail center there. the Pink Heiffer section of trail is named after this original route and replaces the Dragon Back descent on the MBR trail which used to be part of the original Pink Heiffer route.
The GPX track I put up is a route in the spirit of the original trail that has evolved over a number of years, it is no way an official trail.
The route is about the same length as the old Karrimor but can be lengthened and shortened by using more or less of the new trails. You can still use most of the old trails that they have recently replaced as long as you know where they are.
i crashed on pink heffer once, it was raining and slippery and just messed up anyway i was in front and jeff was bringing up the rear as i face planted into the dirt nose first, bit of a cut on the old nogen and a massive scratch on my glasses, it was hillarious
