Brecon Beacons Trail Advice

There are 8 of us going up to stay in Sennybridge in a couple of weeks and we are looking for a suitable trail to do on the Saturday (on the Sunday we are visiting BPW). The Saturday I looked at either doing The Gap trail starting from Brecon, or possibly doing the Mynydd Illtud blue trail, also starting from Brecon.

It's November so no doubt the weather will be TERRIBLE but we are kind of expecting this. I've heard that its wise to avoid The Gap if the wind gets up as it is all very exposed up there, but on the other hand I have heard that Mynydd Illtud is a little boring and mainly consists of little side roads and no interesting decents.

I know there are other rides near by and we have bike racks so would any of you recommend doing other rides nearby? Preferably around the 20mile mark as four of us are regular riders but the other four are all new to it so we don't want it to short or too long.

Any advice would be great, thanks guys!
