Come cycling on Anglesey this Easter:
3 day cycling package
Come and enjoy an Easter break discovering Anglesey by bicycle!
We’ve put together three of our favourite Guided Bike Tours to provide you with an extended introduction to cycling on Anglesey, this Easter.
Why not join us for three small-group guided tours over four days, and spend some time outdoors on the lovely rural back-roads of Anglesey? Soak up the island’s history and prehistory as you cycle past spring-flower strewn verges and marvel at amazing seascapes.
Beaumaris- Penmon Friday 10 April
Beginning with a shorter route, we introduce you to an alternative view of this popular corner of Anglesey. Skirting around the back of Beaumaris for some unusual views of the castle, we share stories about the area’s medieval past as we cycle out to Trwyn Du and its Lighthouse and Penmon priory. After a Café stop, we visit a well-hidden and less well-known ‘castle’ on our return.
Prehistoric Anglesey Saturday 11 April
Once the home of the ancient Druid order, Anglesey has a rich legacy from prehistory, with more ancient monument per square mile than any other part of Britain.
This is a lovely rural cycle along the Menai Strait, turns inland to visit a selection of burial chambers, standing stones and Romano-British earthworks, to conjure up images of an earlier world. We cycle along the Braint valley, an important location for our forbearers, who revered this particular landscape, with its views towards Snowdonia.
We will visit five sites, including the iconic Bryn Celli Ddu burial chamber.
Please note that there is some walking involved to visit the prehistoric sites on this route so please bring appropriate footwear.
Sunday free day!
St Cwyfan, the Church in the Sea Monday 13 April
This is a lovely rural ride which leads us through more of the Island’s history, we’ll see how building Malltraeth Cob changed the shape and nature of Anglesey, cycle through one of the island’s oldest and most successful private estates, and across an old route through the dunes and cross a pack-horse bridge to Aberffraw, the seat of the ancient Princes of Gwynedd.
It’s then a short cycle to the coast and the iconic sight of St Cwyfan’s, the Church now surrounded by the sea (please note the tide will be high so the island will be picturesque, but not accessible). We then head inland to return via the Riverside Café, a favourite with cyclists and walkers!
