Our MTB Pedigree
Back in 1992 after selling a business we moved to Andalusia for a quiet life and a bit of road cycling. But very soon i developed a liking for mountain bikes and soon we were involved in mountain bike rider training and Guiding with a couple of Dutch riders.
They soon introduced me to the Atlas Mountains in Morocco just a Ferry ride from Malaga. Never really did much road cycling after that. Closer to home I discovered the Donkey Trails in the Sierra Navada mountains just a stones throw from Vales Malaga my adopted home in the Sun. A now defunkt German Sport Magazine did a story on us in the Siera Navadas. That created a steady stream of German and Dutch customers to our door.
By 2001 a near death encounter in Morocco forced us to return back to Wales. Say what you like about the NHS they looked after me in Bridgend.
Soon enough after my recovery Afan Valley Bike Hire was born. We are a company with a wealth of experience here in the Afan Forest Park. Our Instructor Guides have been riding the man made and natural trails here in the Afan Forest Park for most of their lives. All are qualified under MIAS or British Cycling as Guides and Instructors.
