Riding Antur Stiniog with Tony Hillier

Last weekend a few of us visited Antur Stiniog for a day of shredding exposed trails in North Wales. Riding with Tony Hillier who rides for the UK enduro team down Meehh Line and into Bendy G.

Antur Stiniog Meehhh Line into Bendy G with Tony Hillier

In the above video, Tony and I ride the Meehhh Line which is a red trail with a ton of high-speed jumps made of tables, gaps, and rollers that can be doubled. Then instead of continuing into the next red called Draft, we transferred onto a black trail called Bendy G. This black trail features many tight single track switchbacks that get steeper towards the bottom with technical rooty and steep steps to navigate.

About Antur Stiniog

Antur Stiniog is a mountain bike downhill and trail centre based in Blaenau Ffestiniog, Snowdonia National Park, North Wales. The bike park is set in the stunning North Welsh mountains and has 14 expertly crafted gravity-fed mountain bike trails that are accessible by up-lift.

Antur Stiniog is an up-lift only centre meaning there is no pedalling or hiking to the top. You must purchase an up-lift ticket and make use of their uplift service which is made up of multiple buses with bike trailers. Antur has the most efficient uplift service I have ever experienced. You rarely have to wait long for your next lift to the top and that includes during Covid times. As it is a ticket only centre you must book to ride. This limits the numbers and means they can run an incredibly efficient service getting you a ton of runs in a day.

The trails range all the way from green to black. There is something for everyone here but you will get the most out of the centre if you are comfortably able to ride red trails.
