W2, Penhydd and Blue Scar
This is an Atkinson tradition started by my brother about 6 years ago. If you go to Afan the default ride is the Epic. The ride is just over 70km with just under 2,000m of climbing. So it’s a full day ride. For those who bite off more than they can chew there are options such as sitting out the short Blue Scar loop in the cafe, missing out on the 8 minute challenge or bail out of the ride at any point and using the old railway line to get back to the car park. Bring some sweets and a few quid for a go faster slice of cake and coffee.
Sat 23rd Feb, so plenty of time to negotiate permission.
9:30am roll from Glyncorrwg Ponds Visitor Centre, Glyncorrwg, SA13 3EA
