Cross Hands To Sandy Water and back (Route 47)

With biking back on the agenda Paul and I decided on a ride from Cross Hands on route 47 to cycle as far as we wanted and then return.  Paul had not cycled the short bit from Cross Hands to Tumble and so we parked by the cinema in Cross Hands and set off.

The weather was sunny but cold and we both wore extra layers!


The route does have trees on both sides for some way and the leaves made a good if not slippy covering.  We passed two groups who were assisting Sustrans on litter picking and track maintenance. In fact both Paul and I were helping Sustrans on Wednesday where we learnt and then carried out hedge laying.

We had a first coffee break near the Heritage Centre at Cynheidre. Warmed up we pedaled on to Sandy Water Park and had lunch overlooking the sea.  We could see a number of vehicles way out on the estuary presumably involved with cockle picking – must have been cold today.

Where’s the haystack?

The return journey was a bit slower as it is uphill most of the way albeit gradual and we had a head on wind to contend with .  Our average speed was about half that to the trip down.

Frightening selfie!

A good day to be out.
