So.. this past weekend myself and a couple of mates cycled to Swansea from our homes in Leamington Spa. I've ridden the the route before and was fully aware of the 'dire' NCN routes around Evesham and Tewksbury.
However the purpose of this post is two fold:
To celebrate that there's newly upgraded little bit of an old railway line / trail which has had some money spent on it just opened, near my house - huzzah!!
..AND to applaud the Welsh NCN routes which have been improved since my last trip. They are in the main absolutley stunning and probably completed 60% of the Welsh leg away from motor vehicle traffic. What a wonderful place to ride a bike, it's night and day from the close passes of day to day cycling that I'm used to. Lovely to see so many local people making use of the trails also. We passed a park-run taking place at one point
