Got a weekend of riding coming up in South Wales. Planning Brechfa on the Saturday, Afan on the Sunday, but would like to do a natural ride on the Friday. Currently looking at either the Crickhowell Killer Loop (the MBR / Tom Hutton one) or The Gap.
Initially drawn the the killer loop but slightly concerned it might be a bit much for a first day (25 miles, 1750m of climbing) and leave us a bit broken for the rest of the trip! Any thoughts on how challenging it is? We're all reasonably fit and experienced.
Also we'll be starting at about 2pm so not sure if that will leave enough time to get round then to Trecastle where we're camping for the night. Would the Gap be an easier / more sensible option?
