Swansea Bike Path

Distance: 5.52 miles
Ascent: 79 metres
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Completing the circuit

One last day in Gower.

I didn't want to start a new stretch of the coast today, so took the opportunity to turn four days' coastwalking into a forty-five mile circuit. I followed the Swansea Bike Path from Blackpill (which I passed on yesterday's walk) to Gowerton (where I started Monday's).

The path runs along a disused railway line through a belt of woodland across the neck of the peninsula. It's an easy route (after all railways tend not to go for steep hills), but the seclusion and lack of other walkers made me feel uneasy. Still, it was a good opportunity to see the autumn colours.

Definitely one for cyclists rather than walkers. For that reason, the accompanying picture is my best attempt at providing a cyclists'-eye view of the track.
