EVENT DATE: 16/17 MARCH 2019


FOX ANTIFREEZE (Sunday 17th March)

The Fox Antifreeze will return to Coed y Brenin on the weekend of 16th/17th March 2019. The event which has sold-out all previous years since its launch offers a great days riding at Coed y Brenin and is an excellent way to banish the chills of winter and prepare yourself for the coming season of mountain biking.

The event is a format is relaxed and social. It’s staggered start means riders can start and ride together with their buddies with the option to set off at any point that the event start remains open. Once started, the clock is ticking and riders can elect to ride either 1, 2 or 3 laps of the 12km course. This flexibility allows riders to choose the distance challenge that best fits them on the day. It’s simple, you just ride and each lap when enter the lap checkpoint area you will be greeted with 2 signposts one offering either “Another lap” or to “Finish”, when you feel you’re done you just follow the finish arrow. The chip timing system reads rider start times then every time the checkpoint is passed. After the event, the number of laps ridden is allocated to the appropriate route distance.

The event start/lap/finish area is located right outside our shop and below the visitor centre with showers, changing and a warm dry cafe offering views down to the checkpoint, perfect for spectators to stay warm (and dry if its wet).

The event has seen all kinds of weather in its short history, from glorious sunshine to wind, rain to sleet, ice and snow but Coed y Brenin offer the perfect location for this event with great tree cover and superb riding on the UK’s finest all weather trails.

There is always a great atmosphere and a real buzz at the lap checkpoint area with music & pa and finished riders and spectators cheering on those crossing the line or braving “Another lap”.


Jr Antifreeze (Saturday 16th March)

The event weekend also sees the Jr Antifreeze kids MTB challenge. A free-to-enter children’s event with multiple route distances on offer (3, 8 & 14km TBC).



The weekend also sees the return of the popular Fox Sample Sale with our friends from Fox bringing a van load of ex-salesman samples, end of line and clearance goodies, most that will be selling at 50% off the price of their retail counterpart, in some cases up to 70%!
