Starting point


We depart from the Secret to follow the shared use coast path to the River Tawe, where we then pick up the Swansea Valley cycle path to Ystradgynlais. From there we join the road to cycle to Aberdulais via Crynant. From Aberdulais we follow the cycle path along the Neath canal to Briton Ferry, where we will join NCR 4 back to Swansea.

A mixed route using cycle paths and roads, and that follows a series of rivers and canals along the Swansea and Neath Valleys. Look out for moorhens, swans and herons as we go.

Approximately two thirds of the route is along traffic free cycle paths The remainder of the route is along a mix of unclassified and B and A roads.

We will stop at Ystradgynlais or Crynant for teas and coffee, and as necessary on route for photos and a breather.

Riders are advised to: wear a helmet and weather appropriate clothing; carry any refreshments you will require on route; money for refreshments when we stop; a spare inner tube and pump; a lock; and make sure that your bike is in good working order.

We are a sociable bunch that enjoy riding our bikes and having a chat and a laugh. Newcomers are always welcome.
