The Gap trail , any tips / advice please ?
I’d agree with Nipper. It’s a nice enough ride and very scenic but the riding itself is underwhelming. I rode it on a rigid bike a few weeks ago and enjoyed it much more than previously as it slowed things down and added some technical interest. On a bike with suspension the main event is just a mildly rocky blast down a wide track with no time to enjoy the view.Posted 2 years agoHughStewMember
Not sure if it’s the MBR one – it asks me to buy the map and instructions, but as it mentions a tarmac section out of Crickhowell I think not. Bikemagic has a description too but that also mentions Crickhowell. I can have a dig about this evening to see what I can find.Posted 2 years ago
Spose it depends what your after, i loved it and am going back next week but im only an hour up the road and it was my choice for a ‘safe’ way into riding ‘proper’ stuff 😳 8)Posted 2 years agomrhoppySubscriber
I prefer Mynydd Llangorse as a single loop but you can combine that with the gap to make a 65km loop that was good, but I’d echo the comments that the Gap is not worth a drive for the technicality of the riding on its own I think there’s better views elsewhere too.Posted 2 years agoSpinMember
These things are all about your expectations. If you go wanting techy trails you’ll be disappointed with that route. We did it as per the Vertebrate Graphics Mountain Biking in Wales book and thought it was a beautiful ride. That said, I did it on the crosser which obviously makes it a bit more interesting and the road / well surfaced sections less toilsome.
2 country walls for about 1/2 mile and was mainly overgrown when i went last month…is it still overgrown ?
Yes, it’s a waste of time trying to ride that just now. We were there 2 weeks ago.Posted 2 years ago
