Pump/BMX Track

I've had an update regarding the building of the Pump Track. As I said before funding has been secured and the tender has gone out and I can reveal that Dragon Downhill will be building the track. Work is scheduled to start in May.
If you want to see some of the tracks they have built then head over to
I've ridden the track they have built at Bryn Bach Park and it is superb so we are guaranteed a great track.
I'll post more news and hopefully a layout as soon as I get it.

Clyne Trails

Had some updates regarding the pump track today, funding has now been secured and the tender has gone out. I've got no news on who is building it yet but i'm awaiting details of the meeting between the Parks Department and the Contractor. I'll be attending that meeting so I'll update with plans,news,photos etc as and when I find out.

There's another meeting on Wednesday about the Clyne MTB trail. Hopefully I'll have some good news from that as well (fingers crossed but dont hold your breath). Again I'll update you if I find anything interesting out.

GoPro HD960 Video Camera

We've had the HD960 at the shop for a while now and we are going to make it available for hire very soon. We currently have a chest mount and a velcro helmet mount available.
I'll be adding some more mounts (mostly custom made ones) as times goes on but what I'd like is your input.
If there is a particular mount you think would work really well let me know and I'll see if I can make one.
Here's a little bit of test footage

YouTube compress the video , the raw footage is HD quality.
We are still finalising details of how and when but let us know if your interested in hiring the camera.

More Dog Visits

Some new bikes in (check out the second hand bikes section), some frames as well
(a Giant Glory no less) and we have some used wheels in as well (pics to follow)

In the meantime Pepper dog came to visit today. Here he is in a rare moment of stillness

Lots of repairs in, so not had much time to report lately, and there was no riding last weekend due to food poisoning :(
Will make up for it this weekend by either riding and digging or just heading for Brechfa, not sure yet. Feel free to try and sway me
