Planning on riding all bank holiday weekend at various locations in the Welsh valleys. A Saffa friend from London is coming down to sample the local riding delights.

I'm flexible on the itinerary but might do something like this:

1.) Saturday: Tirpentwys near Pontypool.

Some fantastic trails built by the Tirpentwys Trail Crew. Never been before but the trails look fucking amazing.

Here's an Instagram segment with Laurie Greenland ripping it:

2.) Sunday: Loamworld

3.) Monday: Afan or the Masts. Monday looks worse weather wise so Afan might be a good call.

If anyone is interested in any or all of these rides feel free to let me know and tag along.  :)

I've really only got this weekend, planning to ride Tirpentwys (Pontypool), Loamworld, and the Masts; though I'm flexible on that plan.

Yep. 8) Still not recovered from this stupid cold though, so I'm considering the Swansea Beer and Cider festival instead of Clyne.

Ta Steve, and thanks for the company all. Walnut whips, doughnuts delivered by David on foot*, fresh crab and beer in the marina afterwards. Why can't all rides be like that? (Best not to mention that we caught hypothermia outside the cafe and chairs were being blown away by the wind.)

*David has set an interesting precedent here, which he promised to maintain every ride. Look out for him popping out of the bushes brandishing pastry goods..

Haha, I don't remember any such promises*, but then again, I'm also getting old! ;)

I don't have any leave left  :'(  (I run out while I'm away on the family holiday in a fortnight!!) So all I can try and do is tag along with you for just a weekend.  :-[

Anyone fancy a road trip?  My brother and I both realised we have lots of hols left to use.  Thinking of taking some days off and linking up some riding spots.

Something like North Wales / South East England / Lake District (if I can work out the trails).

Gav's off for the next 2 weeks so going to try coincide with that if possible.

Even if you can't come.  Add in some suggestions of places if you can think of any i've missed.

South West
Quantocks
Triscombe
Dartmoor
Gawton
Wind Hill
417 Project (South-ish)

North Wales
Llandegla
Nant Yr Arian (On way)
Climachx
Coed Y Brenin
Betws Y Coed
Penmachno

Lake Distric
No idea!

Yeah, I enjoyed the ride. Nice one guys.

Walnut whips, donuts and (kind of) sunshine trails? Nice.  :D
