Being 1/2 numpty I've only just realised that BPW is closed this weekend for the Welsh DH Champs and we have booked some accommodation in Merthyr.
I've been looking for alternatives and have only been able to find the following:
- Brecon Beacons
I've ridden afan and cwmcarn quite recently so the Brecons appeal but I'm a bit put off by the videos i've been watching of routes like the Gap - it just looks like an XC slog with very little singletrack.
So the question is, is it worth doing? If not, are there any alternatives which offer a more exciting ride?
There's a few caveats...
- I'd prefer to keep the route to 20-25 miles or less.
- As much singletrack as possible
- I don't really want too much in the way of complex route finding, I'm not that experienced and I'm going with a group who I'd rather not worry with wrong turns etc.
Can you help?
