The North Wales Cycle Path stretches along the coast from Holyhead on the Isle of Anglesey to the City of Chester in England. Cycle on quiet lanes through Anglesey with fine views across the Menai Strait to Snowdonia. Once on the mainland the route follows the North Wales coast passing through the seaside towns of Penmaenmawr, Llandudno, Penrhyn Bay, Rhos-on-Sea, Colwyn Bay, and Prestatyn to Connah's Quay before following an old railway line and canal towpath into the heart of Chester. <br><br> The section in Colwyn Bay is traffic free, a three mile flat section from Rhos Point to Penmaenhead in Old Colwyn. Many more sections of the route are traffic free and it is ideal for short day rides with the family. Indeed you can ride from Conwy to Rhyl via Rhos-on-Sea and Colwyn Bay on a traffic free route for almost all the way (except for a short section in Llandudno is on the public roads).<br><br> If taking the full North Wales Route it would be wise to cycle from west to east to make the most of the prevailing winds. Note: Take care when crossing the A55 dual carriageway over the headland between Penmaenmawr and Llanfairfechan. And another word of warning if you are hooked on cycling. Be careful that the anglers at the Old Colwyn end of Colwyn Bay Promenade don't hook you while casting out from the beach railings adjacent to the cycle path!
