Which Afan Trail for the Missus?
edited July 2009
Right, I'm off to Afan on Saturday and although I've always headed to the Drop Off Centre for the Whytes Level trail, I 'd better pick one that my wife who not too much of a hill lover will mind (too) much.
Although the fireroad climbs are DULL!
I'm not a hill lover, but the climb at whites level is well worth the downhill sections,
The wall is ok, but again, you have a big climb (split up by flat/uphill singletrack sections) then some really fun downhill sections, especially Zig Zags!!!
What goes down must have gone up first; there's no escaping the boring uphill sections!
Penhydd. there is a horrible stepp bit in the middle of the wall
