Experience the wild beauty of the South Coast of Wales on a week's cycling adventure!
Starting in Swansea, this trip first passes through the interior of the Gower Peninsula AONB to the coast at Rhossili before taking in the wetland conservation areas of Llanelli. Crossing the River Towy to St Clears, the coastal path leads to charming Saundersfoot, passing through bucolic villages and farmland before culminating in one final ride to magical St Davids.
The trip starts this afternoon at our accommodation in Swansea.
After checking in (check in at the hotel is from 3pm), you will meet (approximately at 5pm) with other group members and your leader who will conduct a welcome meeting and will run through a bike and kit check. This evening, enjoy an included welcome dinner together.
