Topic - Mountain biking in Snowdonia with a total novice

mkean - on 12 Sep 2013
I'm heading to North Wales this weekend and the weather is potentially looking a bit damp for climbing. Any good suggestions for somewhere I could take a total mountain biking novice who has a new bike to play with? We will be based in Capel Curig.

- I'm not too keen on a lot of tarmac bashing (I've got very knobbly tires and I also don't fancy getting run over).
- She has the sum total of 10 minutes of off-road cycling experience but is pretty fit (has an unhealthy interest in running).
- I'd rather the trails weren't too cheeky as quite frankly we probably won't be moving fast enough to escape from an enraged hill walker ;-)

A nice loop with some singletrack and some non-terrifying descents would be good although black runs and potential deathtraps will be filed away for the next trip ;-)
