Great guided mountain bike session
Jul 2018 • Family
My two sons (17 and 13) had a three-hour ride with Ben and his team on Tuesday 10th July. From start to finish they were professional, safety conscious and fun. Whilst I went off for a walk with other family, my boys had a blast around the forestry.
Can't recommend them highly enough,many thanks :-)

Great bike shop
Jun 2017 • Family
Ben and his team run a great set up with everything you'll need for a days biking in the forest!
Now if they can only work on getting that cafe open at normal times it would be perfect!

great place to hire bikes for mountain biking
Apr 2017 • Family
my and my 11 year old son hired 2 mountain bikes for cycling across 2 days. It was a nice place.
Our bikes were quickly sorted out and we choose two different bikes across both days.
Over all a good experience and will definitely go again

Great fun riding...
Jul 2015 • Friends
First time at a trail centre and really enjoyed the experience.

Some real challenging riding and could really have done with a full sus bike rather than my hard tail.

Area is also excellent for wilderness riding and single tracks

Would happily return for more

Pedeling rather than pedelow

Why fly away when we have all this wonderful countryside around, and how better to see it than a leisurely bicycle ride through little Switzerland the Afan valley. You don't even need to take a bike because the bike shed will hire you one for that little dream cycle. From adults to infants you can hire many types of bikes. Well worth a try

Days instruction and guiding
Oct 2015 • Solo
Done a lot of road cycling but new to mountain biking. A friend recommended Ben at Afan Valley Bike Shed and I booked a days lesson and guiding on 20th October.

Communication was great throughout. Ben was really friendly and helpful. We split the day into half a day instruction and then a blue trail. Then lunch followed by a red trail.

Afan is such a great place of mountain biking and his position in the heart of it is great. The shop is well stocked (although io had my own bike his hire stuff looked great) and he's very knowledgeable both as an instructor and guide. I had a really good day - learned loads and had a a lot of fun

Couldn't recommend ben and the shop highly enough.

Great Weekend of Trail riding
Jun 2015 • Friends
Hired a full-suspension Marin for a day on the Saturday. Ben had one of the right size ready. Had some problems with a peddle on the first circuit of the day but this was sorted while we had a fab lunch at the visitor centre, making the second circuit far faster and more exciting. On our return it was suggested that we come back the following day to borrow at no extra cost a Marin of our choice from a promotion which was going on over the weekend so we each borrowed a £3000+ bike and threw it around for an hour or so. This is not something you get to do every day. Great start to a day before driving back to Cornwall.

We will be back tom take in some more of the tracks.
