Coast 2 Coast (Lougher to Swansea Bay)

Is this now a weekly ride out – hope so!

Paul and I decided on the NCN route 4 from Lougher bridge (dividing point between Scarlets and Ospreys) and down the almost traffic free route to Swansea Bay and then through Mumbles and a planned coffee/tea at Verdi’s.

The weather was  dry and calm, not far off the forecast. We had a coffee break (home made) near Dunvant and the on to the front at Swansea Bay. The last time we were here we turned east and visited the Marina in less than clement weather.  Today we headed west along the trail through Mumbles and as far as the pier. The latter is now being renovated and was closed to the public.

We returned as far as Verdi’s where they were doing a brisk trade. It was far to hot inside and so being true outdoor people we  had our refreshment outside.

It seemed a bit rude to open our own sandwich boxes and so we cycled back onto the cycle route and had lunch by the ponds before returning to Lougher.
