Best days out

You can't beat a couple of days here, maybe with a day at Afan or Cwmcarn thrown in for some added variety. We tend to rent a house, often in Aberdare and you can't go wrong with some decent pubs, curry house and chineses! ...

Return trip to Cwmcarn

Overall a great place to go with easy access from the M4, brilliant for a day trip (I am based near Reading) or as part of a weekend in Wales.

Amazing place to ride

Amazingly fun place, with loads for everyone of all abilities. it is worth making it past the first red technical rocky climb as the next part I'd totally different and worth the pain. I try to go here every time I am up that way....

Brilliant, fun day out. I would happily take novice riders there before moving on to something like Bike Park Wales so they can enjoy the bigger trails.
