- Gower trails – please recommend
There's LOADs of trails there but I reckon you need a local to show you really – I used to go there for weekends (late 90s) with a mate who grew up there and we always did some brilliant trails but I'd never be able to find it on my own and I suspect that a fair bit of it was cheeky or not even marked on maps.

Yes a tracklogs would be lovely thanks molgrips (my email in profile).
As for secret stuff, I love exploring so I just need pointing at where to start looking really. Anything you can remember would be great thanks Clubber, esp. stuff fairly close to Llangennith.Posted 7 years ago
I really couldn't help I'm afraid – it's the kind of thing where one second you're riding along a golf course and the next your on a rooty, twisty singletrack that you'd never have noticed if it hadn't been pointed out. Or riding along a grassy coast path and then suddenly turn right on a path that's not really there and plunge out of sight, on the trust that my mate knew where he was going… 😉Posted 7 years ago
That singletrack route is defo the wrong way round! Although thinking about it Rhossili Down rides better that way round – south end is most possible to ride up, and north end the most exciting to ride down. Also crossing Bury Pill is better North-South. I would do that ride from Penmaen and finish along the top of Cefn Bryn – for me a downhill finish is mandatory.Posted 7 years agocrispedwheelMember

I was down there last Easter and had a cracking ride basically following the Gower Way from Worm's Head up to Gowerton. I was staying in Mumbles so scooted down the Sustrans type path back down to Mumbles to finish. More than three quarters of the Gower Way is marked as bridleway, and I took a couple of obvious detours to avoid footpaths. There is quite a lot of bridleway and small lanes around the southern section so a full loop wouldn't be hard to work out with some road. Trail pixies had been busy in Clyne Woods too. Lots of sandy fun around Three Cliffs Bay, (legally)across the golf course and around the woods on the main road, and good coffee and cake in Pennard Stores cafe in Southgate. Catch the tide right and you could cover nearly half the southern coast riding along the beaches.Posted 7 years agoAnalogueAndyMember
