Safe cycle routes can be enjoyed by all the family at a number of locations across Neath Port Talbot. Whether it's disused railways through glorious countryside or following canal towpaths past locks and bridges, there is a variety of family-friendly places just waiting to be discovered.
Some of the most popular cycle tracks include the Afan Low Level Routes which run along the base of Afan Forest Park. These are great trails for all the family with picnic and refreshment stops punctuating almost 32 kms of trail.
The Cwm Tawe Cycle path forms part of the National Cycle Network Route 43, which takes you through the heart of the Swansea Valley from Pontardawe to Ystalyfera. This section starts off on the tree-lined towpaths through the picturesque town of Pontardawe before heading north to Ystalyfera, meandering alongside the River Tawe.
The Celtic Trail is part of the National Cycle network and one of its most leisurely and enjoyable sections takes you along the promenade at Aberavon with its fantastic views across Swansea Bay. For something a little bit more adventurous try the High Level from the Rhondda Valley down into the beautiful Vale of Neath following the canal path to Briton Ferry.
