Unexpected trails with surprising sea views
Swansea or Abertawe in Welsh, lies within the historic county boundaries of Glamorgan and the ancient Welsh commote of Gŵyr. If this sounds like lord of the rings language, it is because some of Tolkien’s invented languages are Welsh based. The landscape is also very Tolkien. The local trails around Swansea, including Clyne Woods can be challenging. so bring your full suspension If you are into enduro. But if you want a more relaxed tour on a gravel bike, we can take you to the best view points in town.

The land of old red stone
Such an iconic name, but often confused with the Black Mountains. The Black Mountain forms the western high ground of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
