Afan today (Go Pro link)
Rode Afan today with the wife a nice pootle round on the singlespeeds. Someone’s been busy with the chainsaw! A lot of landscape changes since the last time I was there. And to the guy 8:50 in, I do hope you moved your bike before you had someone off!

Nice vid. Afan is my local so its interesting seeing someone else ride it. You certainly took an interesting line through the boulders at Darkside but I guess that was forced on you by the stalled riders. Never tried rolling off the first one anyway.Posted 6 years ago
Looks like it was a wet one. So many of my Afan vids have been spoiled by mud splatts on the cam. Cheers for posting I enjoyed it.
(We were there Saturday too)
jesus ! do you speed those up, or what ? (think I need to get a
bitlot fitter – I’m literally half your pace on the pedally bits like that slightly uphill boardwalk. No bloody way could I do the climbs on a SS either 😯 )

Christ ! 😳
I said to my mate, there were several “jumps” that were ridiculously placed (for me) at the end of flat sections or even short rises that I was just wheezing up to and then rolling over (end of that boardwalky bit of the “energy” run, for example). The climbs took pretty much all I had to offer, effort-wise.
Good place, though. I reckon we’ll be back soon enough

My experience with GoPro footage is that it always appears HEAPS slower on cam than it was in reality.Posted 6 years ago
As I mentioned previously Afan is my local trail centre so I know it really well.
I thought the speed in that clip was fine for anybody let alone somebody on a SS. Hats off to you.
I wouldn’t worry about ssjeff’s comments. He seems to be a serial pest around here.
just out of interest then (and no particular invitation for willy-waving) how long would it take you lot to ride up whites from the ponds to the start of the energy section (no black* run detour) ?
(didn’t set a watch but I guess prob an hour for me this morning, maybe 45-50 on Friday)
