    ... and if we just ... Rides near Newport & Cardiff, Wales

    It looks like I will be making a few trips to South Wales this summer on business and hope to get some riding in (geared or single speed). Any tips on where to ride and rent a bike (or should I bring my own?) are appreciated. Also any regular group rides in the area?

    Thanks,

    Alex

    Afan Argoed is the best place for you to rent and have a good ride (or many good rides).

    There is a shop/rental place at the Glyncorrwg Centre. This is all in the hills north of Port Talbot, west of Cardiff. Well over 100k of (moslty) singletrack, can be a bit samey, but a very good place to ride. One of the Welsh centres with lots of built, all-weather trails - well, 4 specific trails, but lots of trail.

    Closer to Newport there is Cwmcarn, but I don't think there is a rental place near there. Not even sure what the nearest bike shop is.


    For more natural, old-school riding the Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains are also very close.
