Roadies Away Weekend in Wales

We will again be spending two days in the Brecon Beacons at the Star Bunk House, Bwlch (or other place of abode if you wish). Last year's explorer proved this is great cycling country and routes suitable for all riders can be found. The evening meal in the pub across the road is fantastic and we found a great cafe for Sunday morning's breakfast. Let me know if this will be of interest to you. Peter Farnfield

A winter mountain bike ride is not measured by the usual methods such as miles or amount of climbing, but by volume and quality of mud. Mud formed in areas of clay or chalk is thick, sticky and horrible to ride through. Sandy mud, on the other hand, is ruinously abrasive and can destroy a set of disk pads in one ride.
