    Rode afan for the first time yday...

    would suggest Cwmcarn first, as the terrain isnt as rocky.. so doesnt feel as tough as the climb up afan whites level. ;)

    Hi there

    You're not far from the Malverns. If you fancy it we could go for a ride. I live in Ledbury which is just on the other side of the hills.

    Myself and a mate regularly visit Cwmcarn though.

    I gotta say I prefer the whites climb to Carns. Each too their own I guess :)

    Also somewhere is a thread where I tried to organize a ride at Afan...

    the climb at cwmcarn is much harder than the one at whites level. the wall at afan is easier again, i think cwmcarn is a much tougher trail than either whites or the wall :D

    i'd personnally reccomend the wall at afan as the climb is mostly fireroad and is quite easy and the singletrack rocks :lol::lol: pity the penhydd is closed :(

    I use to ride in Malvern regularly but got myself a new bike last year that just loves flying down hill .
    so if you guys are not fitness mad i would be up for either .
