Circular cycle route

A hilly but picturesque circular road cycling route navigating the River Conwy valley stopping at Conwy, where the river meets the Irish Sea and continuing onto the seaside town of Llandudno.

At Conwy you’ll find it’s famous castle and home to the smallest house in the UK. Llandudno is a popular seaside town and is the perfect pitstop for an ice cream on a sunny day.

The route has five steep climbs where with each one you’re rewarded with glorious views of the surrounding mountains across the valley, therefore ensure you tackle the ride on a clear day.

If looking for recommendations for cycling stops there’s plenty of choice in the towns of Conwy, Llandudno and Betws-y-Coed itself. However a personal recommendation would be the Conwy Falls Cafe just outside of Betws-y-Coed where as the name suggests you’ll find the stunning Conwy Falls (a popular tourist attraction – with paid entry).
