50km cycling event starting from Rhos-On-Sea, Conwy. Controls at Llanfairfechan. This ride uses the NCN5 as much as possible.
From the top of the Little Orme you take a backroads cyclepath on NCN5 or sweep down the main road to view Lord Mostyns' Seaside holiday town of llandudno. Pie & peas in
Use the Promenade or road and either head round the Great Orme or divert along the bottom to the checkpoint at the old Tram stop shelter, notice Alices' Cat nearby. After follow the coast road to enter the Conwy Castle. Enter the walled town of Conwy, Conwy Castle is a medieval fortification in Conwy. It was built by Edward I, during his conquest of Wales, between 1283 and 1289. Before the coming of the railway to the North Wales coast, the choice was to take the road through Sychnant Pass which was the route of choice for mail coaches at high tide, or the faster and safer route (now a cycle path) along the sands which was unusable at high tide. You will take the the flatter route and soon you will reach the cycle track bridge where it goes over the A55 and soon reach Llanfairfechan to turn right to the Beach Pavilion Café on the promenade at Llanfairfechan with stunning uninterrupted views across the Menai Strait to Anglesey and The Great Orme. Return taking the coast front road and right through a low tunnel under the A55 and left to the cycle bridge over the A55 round the headlands and the cycle bridges back to Rhos-On-Sea.
