A series of 3 cycling sessions for beginners and those that do not like hills, to practice cycling up and down hills. Week 1 we practice in a traffic free environment. Week 2 we have a short road hill to get used to cycling up hill in traffic, and week 3 we extend cycling up hill on road.
Week 1 we will cycle on the cycle paths that extend through Singleton Park. A traffic free environment for practicing on hills. Week 2 we will cycle along the Promenade to Mumbles and then up hill on the road to Limeslade. We will return to Singleton Park via the same route. Week 3 we will cycle along the promenade to Mumbles; we will then take the road up to Limeslade. From Limeslade we will cycle up Plunch Lane to Langland Corner. We then drop down to Norton before returning to the Promenade and Singleton Park.
