Beside the seaside

Start your ride at the heart of the Maritime Quarter (there are numerous car parks in and around the Marina).
Heading south towards the beach, pick up the seafront cycle route and head west. In front of you, you will be able to see your destination of Mumbles, as the cycle route sweeps around the Bay. Once on the promenade, follow the Celtic Trail Route 4 signs from Swansea.
