Meeting time 9:30,
Start time 10:15
8 miles / 12.9 km
(Estimated finish time: 14:45)
Phil Nicholas will lead the 8 Mile loop from the Oxwich Bay car park to Port Eynon. If the tide allows, we will walk along the Western edge of Oxwich Bay to look at the large rock fall that occurred in early January 2019. This should make the walk relatively flat & leisurely. Otherwise we will use the path through Oxwich woods, which has a steep climb at the start. There are toilets, shops & cafes at Oxwich & Port Eynon. All day parking at Oxwich currently costs £5.00. The walk will start at 10:15 at the car park in Oxwich Bay hence the walk is likely to finish between 14:00 & 15:00. Swansea Civic Centre car park should be used as the meet up point for car sharing. This will save fuel, unnecessary parking charges & the planet. I suggest people meet there at 09:30 to allow enough time to arrive at Oxwich on time & allow for Sunday cyclists.

Join us for a post festive stroll to see the spectacular 80 foot waterfall. Only a shorty, to stretch those mince pie laden legs. But still a treat for those itchy feet. Cosy pub nearby to share the last of our Christmas wishes, before we embark on many more days of miles and cheer.
