Swansea Bay is part of the National Cycle Network (route 4) and the Celtic Trail West.
There are a number of family-friendly cycle routes as well as more challenging mountain bike tracks in and around Swansea and Gower.
City and County of Swansea have made a few cycle maps available for download (http://www.swansea.gov.uk/cycling) but I think the size and scale of them maps don’t make them practical for printing on a PC. You probably find better information on cycling routes around Swansea on www.cycle-route.com.
Swansea Prom offers a flat 5 mile course linking the City Centre to Mumbles, with plenty of refreshment stops and ice cream parlours along the way.
You don’t need to bring your own bike to enjoy a cycle ride in Swansea, you can hire a bicycle when you are here … the box on the right shows you where.
If you enjoy cycling, then why not try kickbiking? A kickbike is a cross between a bike and a scooter, so your joints have far less concussion than running – great if you’re coming back from injury.
