Global Ranking#9695 in Mountain Biking
Rheola downhill mountain bike trail in South Wales is fast, rocky, rooty, steep natural downhill all the way. Tight twisty turns through the trees broke up the high speed chutes and bus stop sections. It is a technical track not for beginners.
Head up the M4 to Swansea, continue to Junction 43. Take the A465, continue past Resolven. Take the first Glyn Neath turn (by Macdonalds). Take the next left (after Macdonalds) which is the old A465. Drive down this road for 3 miand the entrance to the venue is on the right opposite a layby. Alternatively, you can get on the A465 halfway between Newport and Monmouth and drive past Abergavenny and Merthyr along the 'Heads of the Valleys' Road. It's a nice drive if you know it and would avoid and football or rugby traffic down Cardiff if there is anything on.
