The Gower Cycling Festival, based in the lovely Gower Peninsula from 8-15 August and comprises 21 rides ranging from gentle excursions suitable for families with small children to challenging rides for the fitter and more experienced.  This year, we have arranged for camping at the Dunvant RFC from where most of the rides start. 

We visit places of local and historic interest and this year will be celebrating the twentieth birthdays of both Sustrans and Wheelrights. The £5 fee entitles you to take part in as many rides as you wish.
