From enticing lost lanes meandering through valleys to forest tracks or moorland trails climbing up to misty mountains, the fantastic landscapes of North Wales are just begging to be explored by bike. Cycling UK has worked with Natural Resources Wales to create the Traws Eryri (Trans Snowdonia) trail, an off-road adventure route which links up some of the best riding in Eryri.
Beyond the busy summit of Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon), you’ll find miles of tracks and trails delving deep into forests and winding around dramatic mountain tops.
With over 4,000m of climbing, this route is not for the faint-hearted – but if you’re willing to take on the challenge, the rewards are immense. You’ll be treated to thrilling descents with views stretching for miles, and a sense of isolation only interrupted by the warm hospitality of the villages you pass through.
