I've just come back from a cycling weekend at Cwn Carn and Afan in Wales and it was brilliant. I had the best time ever and found that the routes were really good. I would like to go to Brecon Beacons next, can anyone tell me if it's any good and recommend a campsite?

    i did the brecon beast last year and it was quality. if your up for it the merida marathon next weekend is in that area (start/finish in crickhowell) taking in the black mountains and brecon beacons. camping is included in the entry (£25 for the 35km route and £30 for the 50, 70 and 80km routes) :wink:
    if it ain't ain't trainin
    Stick your 'rules' up your a%se

    anyone got any video or picture reviews of the tracks at Brecon?
    i have thought about goin there for a spin a few times but cant decide if its worth it, it looks like a lot of the terrain is on roads (which puts me off)?
    Dont look at it-ride it! they are tools not f*cking ornaments
