Overnighters stopping at Nant Syddion and Nant Rhys bothies, starting at Pont Fyrnach aka Devils Bridge with a potential shuttle ( ie a van ) on the eastern side.
Early November
Rain likely but 99% logging roads
Probably get away with 10 riders or a little more.

I meant will I need anything other than a granny gear... maybe a dingle-speed set-up. With 36/20 and 24/32. Then either use a rear mech tensioner and either just the barrel adjuster or rig up a road break cable quick release to switch between them... could just run gears I suppose.
