Whilst staying in Anglesey take a peaceful bike ride through the surrounding Welsh countryside and really experience the best bits of North Wales. Here are five of what we think are the best cycle routes in the area.

Lôn Las Cefni

This is a wonderful route that takes you through some of Anglesey's most picturesque scenery. It is 11 miles long and is of easy to medium difficulty. The roads are pretty much traffic free, making the ride enjoyable and safe. The trail starts at the wonderfully located village Malltraeth and finishes at Cefni Reservoir. At one stage the route leads you into a local nature reserve known as The Dingle, which has boardwalks and sculptures to enhance the journey, from here you ride above the river Cefni on an impressive boardwalk before you reach the shores of Llyn Cefni.

Lôn Las Cymru

This route connects Holy Head and Anglesey to the Wye Valley in the heart of Wales, using minor roads, railway paths, forestry tracks and ancient coach roads. There are some tough challenges as the route crosses Snowdonia National Park and people are urged to do this journey in sections as it is 175 miles long. This route starts on the mainland and passes through the National Parks of Brecon Beacons and Snowdonia. You can, however start your journey at any point, and ride through dramatic scenery to the quite lanes of Anglesey. This map may help.

Mawddach Trail

For those wanting a short ride, this is a great option. Taking you along the old Ruabon to Barmouth Railway Line from the historic town of Dolgellau to the popular seaside town of Barmouth. You are sure to be wowed by the stunning views of the Mawddach estuary and Cadair Idris. It is 9 miles long and mostly traffic free. It is classified as easy so makes a perfect ride for the whole family to enjoy! Further details.

Route 566

Locally known as the Copper Trail, this is open for a cycle tour around Anglesey's North Coast. It offers spectacular sea views and a journey through a millennium of Anglesey history. The route travels past Cemlyn Nature Reserve, which includes a large lagoon, separated from the sea by a spectacular, naturally created shingle ridge. This reserve is home to a wealth of birds, wild flowers and marine creatures making it a delightful place to visit all year round. This map may help.

Llanfairfechen to Holyhead

This is the final leg of the National Route 5, and is predominantly on road, along the coast to Bangor and then via road from Anglesey to Holyhead. This is one of the many small sections of the long distance route which connects Reading and Holyhead via places like Oxford, Banbury, Stratford-upon-Avon, Birmingham, Stoke-on-Trent, Colwyn Bay and Bangor.
