  • Afan recommendations for a morning
  • Sneaking in a visit to Afan whilst staying nearby at one of the in-laws places. So, I’ve got a few hours to spend there on Saturday and need a recommendation on what to ride.

    Most of my normal riding is on black trails and harder reds, but I will be riding on my own, so don’t want anything super risky.

    What’s my best bet?

    Cheers,

    Y Wal is riding well at the moment.

    Cheers. That was what I was thinking, but wondered if there was anything else to consider.

    I think Whites is the better trail but not everyone agrees with that.
    Feels like you get more descent for the effort.

    Here’s a link to the current trail notice for what’s open. Nothing is especially risky, it’s just about linking stuff together.

    I agree that whites level is the best trail there. Compact but lots of fun. I even like the climb.

    Rode Blade in the end.

    Bit disappointed – seemed like a lot of climbing for relatively little reward. Only the final descent was remotely technical – everything else felt like a blue. Great views and scenery, though.

    I imagine that the better trails are off piste somewhere, but I didn’t have the time or energy to find them.
