Going to visit Afan in late May and I haven't been for 10 years, so I can't really remember any of the trails. Will be going with an enthusiastic bunch of blokes but with quite a wide range of skills and fitness. Some will only manage an hour and a half, the best might manage more like 4 hours (if given pub lunch as replenishment half way round).
Whilst hardly an expert, I'll probably be looked at to come up with a plan of attack which allows some people to drop out half way through (preferably in a location that they can at least stay dry in!) and others to carry on for the afternoon too. Judging by the looks of it, W2 might test some a bit too far, so I guess we'd stick to the reds.
Has anyone had recent experience of taking friends round recently who don't MTB regularly, or does anyone have an idea of how it might be best to tackle the day?
If it makes a difference: at least 5 out of the 6 of us would be looking to hire bikes for the day (hard tails).
