Although the mountainous character of the country makes cycling in Snowdonia more arduous than usual, it is by no means impossible. With a little effort and a little knowledge, cycling in Snowdonia is simply stunning.
This guide offers just that. The tours it describes include the official routes that attract so many cyclists: the trails (Lon Eifion, Lon Ardudwy, Llwybr Mawddach, Lon Las Menai and Lon Las Ogwen) and the National Cycle Network routes, Route 5 along the north coast and Route 8 south from Bangor. On other discovered runs, the author shares his favourite tours through this marvellous landscape.
Please note: this is NOT a mountain bike guide. Off road cycling in Snowdonia is subject to special access agreements. This book does contain runs through forests and on cycleways but they are on trails and cycle paths.
Black & white photos and hand-drawn maps of various scales.
