Yeah Glyncorwg ponds i was looking at staying there but i have heard the cafe has changed hands and is only a shadow of its former self. Fitness wont be an issue im not looking to go storming up the climbs sweat dripping from my head only enjoying it with a big grin on my face coming down :). Can you let me know numbers before the end of july as i need to book the campsite up asap as there is a macmillan charity event there that weekend. Cheers
Rob.

Ok no worries. let me know how many tents you gonna have and ill try to save some space near us.

Danbury has got a good mixture of stuff there are some short DH runs, jumps, canyon drops and some xc if your that way inclined. I would meet you up there but i am away on holiday. Have a good ride.

Hi all, this trip sounds really interesting. I can go from Friday 19th midday/early afternoon and back on Monday 22nd evening. I don't have a car so I could get to the nearest train station to Bryn Betts campsite, which is Neath if i'm right. Can't find rcampsite rates
What type of riding are you going to do? I do xc, downhill never tried :shock: and don't have a bike for that.

Sarpullido dont worry, your bikes more than capable for Afan, take a spare set of brake pads, as if it rains, it eats pads!

Hey Sarpullido like i have said to others the more the merrier. I have already booked time off work for the trip so dates are set but if you want to come join the fun definately, pm me if your interested and im sure we can sort something out for pickup from neath station bud. I went to afan last year and you defo dont need a dh bike for it a good xc bike will take the punishment but you will leave wales with a massive smile on your face i did last year!

Campsite booked, thursday, friday and sat nights :D :D :D

Rob maybe change the thread title to include the dates this weekend and maybe some people might want to day trip on Saturday and Sunday.

Looks like theres a proper linked trail of whites and the wall now, w2. :)

Not ready for full on dh yet, just booked another session with Jedi.

Be riding in Surrey Hills tomorrow, will be later than planned as cant get away til midday ish now.

Anyone else, fancy Afan on Saturday or Sunday...

The campsite we are staying in has availability as a charity event in the area was cancelled.

Agghh!! No Afan trip for me. I've just crashed against another rider on my commute from work and got a very small fracture in ring finger. :sick: He run away. Bastard!! :evil:

Rob's got my mobile number but I don't have his and they are expecting me to arrive at train station to pick me up tomorrow afternoon .Has anyone got Rob's or Beardee's mobile number? Thanks
