Please communicate to all riders that the new sections of trail under construction in the Gyfylchi / Bryn Bettws

area are NOT open!

The trail surfaces and features are unfinished and susceptible to damage

A small number of selfish riders are using these unfinished trails and this is causing several issues:

Safety: this is an active work site with men and machines operating in the area, it is not safe for members of

the public to be in this area

Time: the damage done to the trail surface needs frequent repair and this is delaying the finish of the project

Cost: all the repairs are delaying the project and incurring extra cost for the contractor

The initial finish date for the project was mid to late November but this date will be set back if this irresponsible

behaviour continues.
