Over recent months, improvement work has been completed along the Porthcawl seafront, making it easier to cycle between two of the resort's most popular beaches - Sandy Bay and Rest Bay. The path also forms part of the National Cycle Network Route 88, which connects Cardiff and Newport.

The launch coincides with the opening day of the Sustrans Big Pedal 2017 - the UK's largest inter-school cycling and scooting challenge that inspires pupils, staff and parents to choose two wheels for their journey to school. Pupils from both West Park and Newton primary school attended the launch of the route, which will also make it more practical to cycle to school and work.

Footways have been widened, new paving and bike racks installed as well as a number of signage and drainage improvements. Those using the trails will also likely spot six new Porthcawl Bikes branded bicycles helping promote the new route while also calling attention to the new facilities on offer.

Also in the works is a new cycle benefits scheme - a credit card-sized map will show the route and highlight where to find shops, refreshments, visitor centres etc. The map will also double up as a discount card that can be shown in participating businesses.
