The new Carmarthen Bay ferry - between Llansteffan and Ferryside - carries bikes - < Bicycles can be carried in either direction aboard Glansteffan for free but at the owner’s risk. The boat has space behind the main rows of seats ... [more]

It seems that NCN route 47 has been rerouted here

NCN route 47 turns right according to this sign - and left according to OpenCycleMap

Very clear - presumably dim drivers have tried to get through - but it would be nice if cyclists were allowed past.

Access to the riverside footpath to Carmarthen - it gives access only to the westbound carriageway of the A40, so wouldn't be much use to cyclists even if it were improved.

Cycle parking at Tesco, Carmarthen - covered, but a very long way from the doors. (Ed: although still much nearer than most of the cars.)

Surely drivers are unlikely to drive over a kerb and a grass verge to get onto a roundabout when there's access yards away? But it seems odd to encourage cycles to enter the roundabout here.
