Description of Ride –

Llandudno Pier to Colwyn Bay Pier

This ride starts at the shop and proceeds along the multi user Promenade in Llandudno . 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 slowly and give others 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 of the houses to the little rough track which climbs up to join another road. Turn right and cycle along the road climbing  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. Continue along the designated cycle track to the newly constructed pier and Porth Erias where you can find a café, restaurant and another bike shop. 

Return the same way taking equal care on the dual use cycle ways which can be busy.
