Chester to Rhyl
Travel from England to Wales along National Cycle route 5 on this attractive and fairly flat ride.
You start off in Chester with a lovely long traffic free section which takes you along the Shropshire Union Canal to Blacon where you join a dismantled railway line taking you to Connah's Quay on the River Dee. You then follow the river to Bagilt where you'll pass Flint Castle and the Dee Estuary, before heading through the North Wales countryside to Gronant on the coast. The ride finishes with a lovely traffic free section along the coast passing through Prestatyn and finishing at Rhyl on the seafront.
The ride is easily accessible with train stations at either end of the route.
