New to Swansea
« on: October 05, 2015, 04:45:25 PM »
Hi! I've just moved to Swansea and thought I'd try and make the most of the trails around here. I'm only just getting into mountain biking so still not very good...

Enjoying the trails around Clyne and would like to join the Thursday evening ride if that's OK. I'm guessing it's going to be pretty dark so can anyone recommend any lights that aren't too expensive?

Hi Matt, welcome to the pigs. All are welcome on a Thursday, the more the merrier. For decent lights, look for solarstorm on eBay- lots of us use them and they are less than 20

Welcome to the forum and Swansea.
As Brendan says eBay is the place for lights. There is a guy selling them located in Swansea on there so they arrive fast.
Hope to see you soon.
Riding bikes and having fun
