And you are ready to hit the road, on 2 wheels of course! You really are spoilt for choice when it comes to cycling in Gower and Swansea Bay, with miles and miles of traffic-free routes, the Celtic Trail and the National Cycle Network, you really won’t need to look any further afield!
For gentle, traffic free cycling The Tawe Tour is ideal. At just over 6 miles it’s a great route for families. If it’s a beachfront ride you’re after, then Beside the Seaside is the route for you. It ends up in Mumbles where you can take a dip in the water to cool off, or maybe even grab an ice cream! This is a gentle route, but it is also a 10 mile round trip. It’s well worth it though.
And for the adrenaline junkies, master the twisty, rocky, wildly exposed routes at Afan Forest Park. The trails were voted amongst the World’s ‘Top 10 places to ride’ by Mountain Bike Rider magazine. Boasting over 100km of challenging single track descents, intense climbs, and spectacular views over the South Wales Valleys, you can even hire all the equipment you need at the visitor centre, so there’s no excuse – get stuck in!
