Afan next week, advice sort.
Off to Afan next weekend for the first time. Staying at the campsite at Glncorrwg. We are hoping to get there around 1 on the Friday, ride that afternoon, all day Saturday and possibly Sunday morning if the we don’t go to mad in the pub on Saturday night. All pretty good riders, all have rode all of North Wales centers (our local trails) and most of the 7 Stanes. Any advice on which rides and when welcome.Posted 8 years agoGoodgeySubscriber
Make sure at the campsite that you have a dry pitch for your tent, we had pitches 29 & 30 and they were nearly under water when we arrived for the Easter Long weekend
Whites Level was my best trail of the weekend.
Penhydd and the Wall were great trails was a long cycle back from Afan to Glncorrwg after riding those 2 routesPosted 8 years agoMugbooMember
Avoid Skyline apart from the last descent..
As always it depends on your kind of riding. Penhydd is nice enough as a starter, didn’t ride the wall but it sounds good, loved Whites as it feels like they have applied all the lessons learn’t from other builds and created a very varied trail with plenty of chances to get a little air..
Skyline just didn’t have enough features for the effort in my opinion, but some will love it.Posted 8 years agoAmbroseMember
Whites on Friday PM.
Early Sat AM- shuttle/drop a car off in the Afan Argoed carpark for later. Return to Glyncorrwg in another car.
July Sat AM (July is the shortest version of the Skyline. Turn right- downhill, at the first signed option to do so. A great rocky, wet blast to the road and then re-join Skyline for the final highlights- Peregrine Ridge and Jetlag)
Lunch on some of Tim’s Tortilla and chilli potatoes at the DropOff Cafe.
Sat PM. Ride Whites to Wall. then ride Penhydd AVOIDING FROG CORNER!!! Boggy mess. Then collect the car you dropped off before.
Sunday- you’ve done the best- so pick your favorite(s).
Skyline has a lot of fireroad- too much to be worthwhile in my book. But- not many people do it in its entirety so you will have it to yourselves much of the time, unlike the other ridesPosted 8 years ago
