Another great year for Afan Forest Park
Journalists come to see some of the 'best trails to ride in the world'.
Afan Forest mountain bike trail
Over 40 Canadian journalists have chosen to visit Afan Forest Park to witness the famous mountain bike trails and Forest Park that keeps on making the news for all the right reasons.
Afan Forest Park's 2009 figures show that over 80,000 mountain bikers visited the Forest Park, all wanting to try what many have quoted, as some of the 'best trails to ride in the world'.
The figures also showed that Afan Forest Park was also a popular destination for walking, visited by thousands each year.
The Canadian journalists had the opportunity to experience what Afan Forest Park has to offer, as part of the Travel Media Association of Canada (TMAC) annual conference to Wales organized by Visit Wales.
This was the fist time for the conference to be held outside of Canada. Their visit included a guided walk of the forest park and lunch in the newly renovated Afan Lodge.
