More pictures from Afan

Afan has exerted a powerful pull since our visit last month. Quite apart from the great riding, good company and (in Mark’s case) a new pair of gloves we’ve managed to capture a good few pictures of the weekend (on Flickr).

Here’s some more of my favourites. First, my shot of Colin on the bermy play area at the top of the Whites Level climb.

Next, Dave P celebrating his (probably hungover) achievement in reaching the top of the same climb. Nearly killed him the time we made him stand there doing that…

And finally our tribbles laid out in their glory at the Glyncorrwg car park. Sometimes it’s not until you see the bikes massed together that you realise how much wedge we’ve invested into our hobby. And that’s by Dave alone!

Having ridden a 2007 Orange Five for many years then a 2016 YT Industries Jeffsy 29er, he now rocks a Bird Aether 9 and a Pace RC-627.

An early On-One Inbred still lurks in the back of the stable as a reminder of how things have moved on. You can even find him on road bikes - currently a 2019 Cannondale Topstone 105 SE, a much-used 2011 Specialized Secteur and very niche belt drive Trek District 1.

If you've ever wondered how we got into mountain biking and how the MuddyMoles started, well wonder no more.

    Glad I’m not the only one still enjoying the post-Afan buzz.

    In researching the routes around Pitch Hill though, I’m pretty sure I’ve found a little bit of Afan on our doorsteps.

    The Moles will find out tomorrow night on this weeks nightride.

    Stay tooned folks
