It may be for charity, but there's not a lot of common sense flying around there. It is well known how bad that place is in the wet, but now they are letting 500 riders lose all at once, they will fooking wreck the place! If we thought Brecfa was bad last year after the Trans Whales went through, that is nothing in comparison to what Bedg will be like after this.  I'v been meaning to pay another visit there, best make it before September then!

Let's say 250 bikes on the trail at any one time if teams of pairs, that's 3000 laps of cycling in 12hrs.

Any hint of moisture is gonna destroy the place in minutes!!

Could be fun then!!!
