that sounds good! I've never been to Afan and it would be good to put some faces to these names...

I'll be coming from Bristol and have a van so could offer lifts for a couple of bikes if thats helpful to anybody

Don't drink so much, get up early, have a good breakfast. It'll be a good ride. You could pick up the frame and bits if you make it.

I'll try and make it.

As for unfit, I get out of breath looking at my bike at the moment :lol:
Seriously.

edit:
I wouldn't be going on a retro-rig if I go though, it'd be on my Identiti.

Hi,

Don't want to put a dampner on things but I've just been speaking to my brother who was planning a ride in Afan on the weekend of the 24th and 25th. He was informed, when booking his accommodation, that the Rally of GB is in the area that weekend. Apparently all but one of the trails will be closed.

The Rally of GB site seems to support this:

http://www.rallygb.org/spectators/overallmap.php

Its probably worth someone making a phone call to one of the trail centres to find out more details.

Cheers,

James

I phoned Afan Argoed trail centre this morning. Nearly all the disruption is at the Glyncorrwg site where the Skyline trail is. Afan argoed is virtually uneffected apart from one possible diversion.
