Try the new Legends Cycle Route in Wales

We’ve just been sent details about a new four-day cycling route in Wales.

Called the ‘Legends Cycle Route’, it has been designed to take in some of the Wales’ most legendary sights over 190km and through four counties – namely Carmarthenshire, Neath Port Talbot, Swansea Bay and Pembrokeshire.

The route starts from the Afan Forest Park and heads West finishing in the town of Fishguard. Best of all it mainly follows National Cycle Network paths and all levels of ability can complete it.
