    The 12km Bodmin Beast blue grade cycle trail aims to set the benchmark for singletrack trails in Cornwall, this exciting trail explores the wooded slopes of the Cardinham Valley. With technical climbs and descents, snaking single track trail and features such as tight bermed corners, small step downs, rollers and table tops.

    There are also two sections of difficult red grade trail, which loop off of the main Bodmin Beast. These options will add up to 30 mins to your ride. ‘Dialled-In Dave’ is natural, flowing and fast; an ideal introduction to Red grade single track and a great place to develop your trail riding skills. ‘Hell’s Teeth’ presents a tough initial climb, with some very steep sections, but you’ll be rewarded at the top with some narrow, flowing trail featuring numerous technical features and then a very steep bermed final descent.

    Great pic Chris, looking forward to riding there at some point. Don't think I'm down that way until just before Christmas, might have to try and sneak the bike along and head to Cardinham for a spin!
