Llansamlet/Ystalyfera/Swansea Bay/Llansamlet


With one day left of our boys week I suggested a bike route which Andy had not done. This was NCN43 which links Swansea bay to Ystalyfera.


We parked up at the trading estate in Llansamlet and set off heading north to Ystalyfera. As said in previous blogs this is a traffic free route and  well worth cycling.

No pictures I am afraid. However i cycled this at the beginning of June with Paul

On reaching Ystalyfera the cafe was again closed - early closing on Saturdays, although we were told that the owners were considering extending weekend opening. Not to be outdone we  crossed  the road to have coffee and cake in Asda.

We decided on returning to Llansamlet to continue on to Swansea Bay, which was part of the route which was new to me.  The path is again traffic free and passes next to the Liberty Stadium, home of the Ospreys (not a place for a  Scarlet fan) and Swansea FC.

We crossed  the road to enter the marina area and pedalled around , watching some expensive yachts enter through the lock gates and then back to Llansamlet.

The end of a good week of "being outdoors"
