This ride is totally traffic free and is therefore ideal for people who are looking a route suitable for a family ride. We start our ride from The Maritime Quarter by Kings Dock and just 500 yards from Swansea City’s football ground.

With your back facing landward you cycle to you right along the sea front towards Mumbles Head with the sea on your left hand side as you cycle along.

When you reach the Mumble, the farthest point of your ride there are plenty of establishments where you can enjoy an ice cream or refreshments and you can even visit the Norman castle at Oystermouth which was built around the early 12th century on the site of a previous castle.

You can if you wish extend your ride onto the Gower peninsula. You can if you wish either divert your ride at Black Pill onto the B4436 which will take you onto the Gower or extend your ride at Mumbles and continue through the small suburbs of Mumbles and out through Caswell Bay onto the Gower. The choice is yours….
