Distance: 38.2km | 3 – 5 Hours
A combination of the Dragon’s Back and MBr routes, the Beast of Brenin is a challenging but very rewarding route, which has a perfect balance of fast open riding and technical twisting descents. Drop in at the Forest Café for tea and cake (opening hours vary) before heading out onto Moel Hafod Owen for spectacular views of Snowdonia.
This route promises to be both mentally and physically demanding and should not be attempted unless fitness and skill levels allow. Go prepared with adequate fluids, food, clothing and bike spares. Expect to come back tired, muddy and exhilarated! Keep a look out for shorts cuts back to the centre, should the weather close in, or in case bike/body decide to capitulate.
