Adopt a fatty. South Wales area.
Thanks for the replies 😀Posted 7 years ago
I live about 2 mins from a place called Crosshands(on the A48) about halfway between Afan and Brechfa 😀
Midweek is great for me as my son has a lot of rugby and footie comittments in the am at the weekends, might have to sort some better lights out though.
Also if anybody knows of a nice loop really local to me for evening excursions i’m all ears
granny there’s a regular Swansea Wed eve ride in the Neath/Swansea/Brynammen areas usually involving Ambrose and his gang. I often join up with this bunch as it’s informal but great routes and we all most always end up in a local pub for a pint and pig nuts – not good for the diet though 😉Posted 7 years ago
haha I try Chris but been riding locally to Aberdare as we have a good buch of 6 or 7 who get out regularly, similar to the Blackwood boys, plus now with 2 young kiddies time is a premium also some of the BB rides were starting at 6-6.30 so was struggling to make it there the Neath valley rides start 7pm+ so better for me.
I must get a ride in with the BB’s soon though for sure – great bunch of lads 😀Posted 7 years agoNipper99Subscriber

I’ve been threatening to join Ambrose and crew on a ride for ages.Posted 7 years ago
I’m based in Ystalyfera now, so I can ride to the meeting point for the Upper Swansea Valley rides.
Only ridden once in 2 months, so I need to get out really bad. I reckon we could buddy up at the back of the group Grannygrinder.
It’d be nice to ease into night rides at a gentle pace.
Did somebody call?
Kev- the day I can keep up with you will be the day I eat that gorgeous bike you built me 😉
Grannygrinder, come and join us. We regularly ride on Weds PM, out for a laugh, never (knowingly) competetive, always looking for fun. We try to meet at 7:00 and ride for a length of time that allows us to get a pint at the end.
I’m in Garnant FWIW, working in Burry Port. Others are in Swansea, Llandybie, Llandovery, Llangadog, Brynamman, Cwm Twrch and Llandeilo. And Valleydaddy- he’s from Aberdare but his visa has run out.
This Weds PM ride starting from Kim’s place here:
followed by a bit of Bluegrass here: http://www.buckinn.swanseapub.com/
And we can point you at loads of local loops. Bring a map and a pencil to draw on it with.Posted 7 years agoSkyline-GTRMember
I wish i still lived in Craigcefnparc now lol. That ride would have been do-able without the car. (it’s knackered)Posted 7 years ago
My wife’s supermini doesn’t quite cut it as a cycle transportation vehicle. It’s too nice to put muddy bikes in.
I checked out that route in Ystalyfera. It’s a no-go I’m afraid, it’s a boggy push up for a very poor descent.
The Cwmtwrch ride could be a good un, but I’ve not recce’d the whole route yet.
Text me when you do your next Cwmgiedd or Abercrave ride and i’d love to join you.
Kev- Kim often drives up this way to ride with us. Jason lives in Cwm Twrch, as do Jeff and Nic- although she’s full of baby at the moment. You are not short of a lift, that’s for sure. Can you email me your number, I lost my phone and thus all my numbers on the Tywi track a while back.Posted 7 years ago
