Any idea how much the parking is these days? And how is whites riding? Reckon a better option than the wall with the felling by there. As far as I can see it’s all open.Posted 1 year ago

Wall is all open as the felling is finished (or it was 2 weeks ago). Some bits of Blade was closed…not sure if re-opened yet (the descent after the bermy bit up top by the windmills)Posted 1 year ago
Rode Blade at the weekend, they’ve done a lot of work on the climb, it’s still tough though.Posted 1 year ago

Did Blade last Friday for the first time, no parking fee cos I went by bike. The only thing that did my head in was a few short runs that you had to get the bike on it’s back wheel to get out of and back in to the next trail. It’s a hell of a finish though.Posted 1 year ago
New sections open on the Wall by the way and the Bike park at the top has reopened with all new jumps.
Did Whites twice yesterday – had to give up after that as I managed to crack my helmet on th second go just before darkside (old helmet not bad crash). The climb in particular seems to ahve suffered since I was last there, very scrabbly with loose rocks. I prefer whites to blade as its more XC and hardtail friendly.Posted 1 year ago
Anyone ridden Skyline recently? I might have a crack at it this weekend if it’s all open etc.
Also, are both cafe’s still open for business (Afan Centre and Skyline), id heard rumours that Skyline was closing.Posted 1 year ago
Glyncorrwg cafe was very open on Saturday. Pizzas were underwhelming.Posted 1 year ago
Skyline Cafe changed hands a few months back, it’s still good. Although a couple of cherries wouldn’t ago amiss in their flapjacks…Posted 1 year ago
I don’t think Skyline route has been properly open for quite some time but there was some news from MTB Wales that they were going to do some work to it & have a proper re-opening.
That said, the old route may actually be rideable.
Can’t help with current status of the cafe’s but both were open late last year when I went.Posted 1 year ago
Yesterday the sign said Glyncorwwg cafe open 10-4 every weekday.. maybe lognr hours on w/e?Posted 1 year ago
Here is a trail update pdf link that covers all of the trails at Afan/Glyncorrwg
Keep this page handy and click the MTB Trail Update link in the Closures and diversions section.( it is the live link to the PDF above)
I rode what’s left of Skyline a couple of weeks ago…it’s not great…out to the furthest point overlooking the little lake and then back along not very exciting tracks. I hope they do re-build the original..it felt more remote than the other stuff round therePosted 1 year ago
Thanks guys, that’s really useful 👍Posted 1 year ago
MrPeaSki’s link says Skyline is 26km. I could swear it used to be longer. Am I wrong-remembering?Posted 1 year ago
it used to be 46km (or 42)…but not anymore!Posted 1 year ago
you could make it a bit longer by switching onto Blade on the return, which would likely add a few km (5 or so at a guess), but that’s about it. There was someone on here a few months ago who said they’d ridden the old bits recently, but I tried following a gpx of the old route and couldn’t find where it went after the lake overlook…tho I didn’t try that hardPosted 1 year ago
