GLYNNEATH (VALE OF NEATH) LEISURE CENTRE

 

 I regularly use Glynneath Leisure Centre as the central location for many training sessions, nestling at the top of the Vale of Neath it has almost everything a triathlete or cyclist needs and is easily accessible from the M4 and A465. 

Glynneath Leisure Centre...........

  • is situated 200 mts from one of the fastest 25 mile cycling time trial courses in the UK.

  • has quiet roads for cycling on it's doorstep with measured 10 & 15 mile time trial courses less than 1 mile away.

  • is less than a minute away from good off road mountain bike riding with access to the trails of the Afan Forest.

  • has a 1500 foot road climb less than a mile away.

  • is on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park which is ideal for long scenic & testing rides. 

  • is approximately one mile from an open water swimming lake.

  • has a 4 lane 25 metre swimming pool, while it is not the best pool for training in, it is adequate for stroke analysis and medium length sessions.

  • has a canal towpath nearby ideal for relaxed running

  • has an off road tarmac path nearby ideal for running speed work and tempo sessions.
