Finally, a sunny day (well mostly anyway)

After weeks and weeks of rain followed by snow the hope of a dry day (but not dry trails) lured us back out to the Afan Skills Park.

After a couple of hours riding the excellent trails we rolled to the cafe at Bryn Bettws Lodge for a rest and a cuppa. Never one to resist a sticky looking cake I also had this....

.....toffee cake , so good and highly recommended, as is the coffee.  Oh and they also have a wood burner to take the chill out of your bones.

Bike Park Wales

Have a look over at Cognation's website for details about the new Bike Park at Gethin Woods, Merthyr Tydfil. 

"BikePark Wales will start building a bike park that can be used by riders of all abilities offering a range of different graded trails. BikePark Wales will open in autumn 2013 with 10 trails, but this number will increase as the development expands over the coming years."
