Heres a vid of part of our Easter mtb trip to South Wales, We stayed in Afan lodge and thoroughly enjoyed it, with Cwmcarn, Afan and bike park Wales all within a short drive away.

Im still working on my editing skills, and still have plenty of footage to go through with Park Park Wales to come soon.
All shot using my Gopro Session and a chesty mount.

Hope you like it!

    I can't get your Afan videos to play, Mitch.
    Both play about half a second at the start and then buffer.

    Working now. I had to reduce the quality to 480p though. Anything higher at it just sits and buffers.

    Good videos, Mitch. I'm am massively impressed with your riding.
    I'm hoping to head over to Afan in May so it's nice to see what I'll encounter.

    Ah yes ive had that before with the buffering, lowering the quality usually sorts it..

    Afan was excellent, we all really enjoyed the trails in that area. We stayed in Afan Lodge and that was really good too, comfortable, great food and beer, and the owners/staff are all really friendly/helpful. They are geared towards mountain bikers and have a secure lock up for your bikes, a bike wash area and trail maps etc to hand, it was excellent really!

    Glad you like the videos, im still going through footage from Wales with Bike Park Wales to do next, should get that uploaded over the next day or two.

    Ive been impressed with the GoPro Session, really simple to use, nice and small/lite and it looks good too.

    Im hoping to grow the youtube chanel and include some TT Course/motorbike stuff as well, I should be able to get the camera into some interesting positions/angles, hopefully make for good watching!
