Looking for a challenging pre-season mountain bike event to kick-start your training? Ever finished a ride that felt twice the distance? Want to explore some great singletrack? Well then, check out the Wentwood Forest 50km Goshawk Challenge.
Two routes – 25km and 50km – for you to enjoy, most of which is all natural singletrack with a mix of fireroad and some tarmac at the start (helps sort out the line-up before hitting the singletrack) and finish.
Wentwood Forest is the largest ancient forest in Wales with over 1000 acres of continuous broad leaf and coniferous woodland. There’s over 1500m of climbing and none of it is gained easily.
