Distance – 7.5 km or 5 miles
Gradient Description – Mainly flat with one significant hill
Difficulty Level - Moderate
Description of Ride –
Llandudno to Rhos on Sea and return
This ride starts at the shop and proceeds along the multi user Promenade . This is a wide open flat area but is used by lots of people for walking, riding, dog walking and playing so please take care, ride slow and give other a wide berth.
After the paddling pool the signposted Sustran’s 5 route crosses the road and uses the dual use pavement towards the Little Orme. At the first junction turn right and ride in front of the houses to the little rough track which climbs up to join another road. Turn right along the road and climb again to where you meet the turning to Penrhynside and the cycle track. Down the cycle track to the roundabout always following the bike trail signposts across the various crossings and past the petrol station.
From here the track follows the pavement along the coast to Rhos on Sea where there is a beach, ice cream shops and cafes.
Return the same way
