If it's world class mountain bike excitement you are
looking for then Afan Forest Park is the place to
be seen. What can be said that hasn't been said already? The most
wicked trails built in and across the most dramatic of landscapes
Two trails to cut your teeth on first are the 16km 'Penhydd' and
the 23km 'Wall' - why do you think they call it 'The Wall?'. Well
you try cycling up it! Basing yourself at the Afan Forest Park
Visitor Centre will give you direct access to these two trailheads.
Then, on your return, a bike wash, cup of piping hot chocolate and
a wedge of cake awaits you in the café or out in the picnic
If you are the type whose stamina will stand up to the endurance
test of Skyline (45km) and White's Level (15km), then head to
Glyncorrwg Mountain Bike Centre
where both trail heads start and finish underneath the café.
Visit the purpose built centre with bike and repair shop, bike
wash and showers, before rounding off your visit sipping one of
speciality hot drinks and enjoying a bite to eat on the decked
veranda, whilst watching the riders make their final descent.
