"We almost don’t want to tell you about Syfydrin because it’s the wild, desolate, lonely beauty of the far loops of this route that create its magic. A unique mix of technical singletrack and ethereal emptiness, this genuine mountain route is one to savour, but certainly not one to underestimate."

       1st time on this trail & it was brill for a long ride. Well way marked.
      If like me you have only been doing 20 / 25 km ride's give this one a go to get you to 35 ish on the map (but only 33.78km on my tracker).
      Some good fast rocky down's & some good long up's a bit of roads & lots of stuning views.
