Cycling the Wales Coast Path
Conwy Cycle Route – National Cycle Route 5
Beautiful North Wales is one of the best locations in the UK for cycling. No matter what your age or ability, the North Wales Coast Path can be enjoyed by everyone.
From the promenade in Llandudno, you can cycle along the coast for miles taking in the breath takings views along the way.
Several sections of the Wales Coast Path are designated sections of the National Cycle Network, which offers a great opportunity to explore the Path.
This section of the National Cycle Route 5 runs along the North Wales coast and links Rhyl, Kinmel Bay, Abergele, Colwyn Bay, Rhos on Sea, Llandudno, Conwy, Penmaenmawr and Llanfairfechan. The majority of the route is a traffic-free trail with a short on-road section at Conwy before returning to the traffic-free seafront route. The route then continues on-road and westwards along the coast through the seaside towns of Penmaenmawr and Llanfairfechan.
A mostly traffic-free section goes to Conwy through the beautiful Victorian seaside resort of Llandudno, around the Great Orme onto the West Shore and provides stunning views of the Conwy river and of Conwy Castle in the distance. This route also provides a link to the RSPB Reserve in Llandudno Junction.
A good proportion of the traffic-free sections of the route are suitable for walkers and wheelchair users.
There are plenty of cafes along the way in the many towns and villages.
National Route 5 extends westwards from the seaside towns of Penmaenmawr and Llanfairfechan, and finally to the city of Bangor.
