We skirt around to get an unusual view of Edward I’s fortress, before revealing some of the secrets of this fascinating South East corner of Anglesey. This is a fairly short ride at 11.5 miles- with a few small hills. That’s because there are so many fascinating places of interest to explore along the way! Highlights include a ruined priory and another castle as well as dropping down to Penmon point and the lighthouse and some refreshment t the Pilot House Café.
This route takes you past Bryn Celli Ddu, of Anglesey’s most important and iconic prehistoric sites. We also have an opportunity to visit four other sites and more interesting and rewarding views, skirting the Menai Strait on our return t the car park and café where we started out.14 miles, with some walking to visit some of the sites en route.
Packed lunch or snack in case you’re hungry before we reach Foel Farm cafe.
Llanddwyn- Lover’s Isle
Visit Llanddwyn the island named after Wales’ Patron saint of lovers. We meet at Pentre Berw for a leisurely flat cycle mainly off-road towards Newborough forest- we may see red squirrels or here the cawing of the ravens as we cycle towards the sea. Bring a picnic and we’ll leave the bikes to walk across the beach to beautiful Llanddwyn Island (keeing an eye on the tide so that our stay is not too long!)
The home-made food in the café on our return is a well-deserved reward for your 17 miles of cycling even if you didn’t meet or conquer any big hills!
2019 Calendar to July
Visit Cwyfan - the church surrounded by sea
Once part of the mainland, this Church is still occasionally used for weddings, and makes for a dramatic seascape. After a ride out to the coast (and a short walk along a footpath), following the old track across the dunes and through Aberffraw village, we can explore the coast and Church, and stop off at a café before heading inland for our return journey.
