Plan a trip

A 20-mile beguiling ride up the Tawe Valley from Swansea, almost entirely traffic-free. The well-chosen route in Swansea takes you out of the city on a smooth tarmac path along the riverbanks. From here, the Swansea Canal towpath and a railway path continue to the edge of the Brecon Beacons. It's currently a dead end but there are ambitions to extend to Brecon; the more experienced cyclist could follow the A4067 into the Beacons, peeling off along the minor road to Trecastle and the headwaters of the River Usk.
