One of the four Mach Trails, with this being the middle Mach – Red Trail. Exploring the countryside to the south of Machynlleth, it starts off following the Mach 1 before taking a more adventurous route into the hills and a bit more climbing.
The Mach 2 is a great mix of wonderful descents, open climbs and beautiful valley views.

Base Summary: Dyfi Valley Mountain Biking
Community run MTB routes that start directly from the town of Machynlleth, with the Cli-machX starting from Ceinws a few km to the north with a quiet country lane ride on the National Cycle Route 8 to get to. The routes involve a bit more road riding that the other MTB centres, with only the Cli-machX providing a pure off road trail. While the other routes do have the dreaded road sections, they make up for this with sections of wilderness that none of the pure mtb centres can compete with.
