just noticed this .hope it went well PP..........we went swimming agin in the taff today......current was less than last week as we hadn't had much rain recently............

it was lovely again...........we went a bit further but found that after 1/2 mile upstream the river gets shallower and had loads of weeds so for decent swimming its upstream 1/2 mile and then back to the start.........next weekend i might try to do a bit more than a lap........

i love it

if anyone fancies it sometime let me know....its off junction 32 of the M4

Not convinced about the river swimming Seren, lol.  The quarry was lovely this afternoon, only issue I had was I didn't dry my wetsuit properly last time I used it so I struggled to get it on properly.  It felt really tight on my neck which was pleasant .. teach me for being sloppy with my wetsuit care!

The river where we are going is nicer and cleaner than any lake i have swam in.........

it is cold when you first get in to the river but warms up when you start swimming......

Seren, is that just above the Weir (Radyr), off the Taff Trail? Often thought about jumping in for a swim when I'm running down there, but never really see anyone. If so, might give it a go one day

Thats the place......a few step lead you down........really safe......i would still prefer going with someone or having someone on the bank watching just to be safe...............

Its so warm today I could do with jumping in now

Post when you're next going, I'm Rhiwbina based, and run from The Village on Coryton, so pass by all the time.

I'd give it a go too, and Radyr not that much further than Chepstow for me.
