Chester to Llandudno
This super cycle ride takes you from England into Wales along National Cycle Route 5. The route runs for about 50 miles with long coastal runs and traffic free sections.
The ride starts in Chester and begins with a nice waterside run along the Shropshire Union Canal to Abbot Meads. Here you pick up the trackbed of an old disused railway to take you west through Blacon. The traffic free path takes you all the way to Connah's Quay with views of the River Dee.
The next section follows quiet roads to Bagillt, where you leave the river to head inland to Holywell Common and Brynford. You continue west to Whitford and Gronant where you pick up the coastal trail. There's a nice traffic free path to follow through Prestatyn, Rhyl, Colwyn Bay before passing Little Orme and finishing in Llandudno.
You can extend the ride by heading up to Great Orme Country Park where there are some wonderful coastal views to enjoy.
