Discount packages for Easter Guided Bike Tours (Media Release)
As petrol and other costs soar, one tourism company is offering discounts on cycling tours.
Green Lane Bike Tours have put together four of their favourite Guided Bike Tours to provide locals and visitors with an extended introduction to cycling on Anglesey, this Easter, and offering 10% and 15 % discounts on bookings of two or more tours.
Why not join them for any of the four small-group guided tours over five days, and spend some time outdoors on the lovely rural back-roads of Anglesey?
Soak up the island’s history and prehistory as you cycle past spring-flower strewn verges and marvel at amazing seascapes. Even if you’re local to Anglesey, the company are sure that they can introduce you to somewhere you’ve never been before or something you’ve not previously seen!
Eli Elis-Williams, Green Lane Bike Tours Owner and Guide Leader commented:
“With more people wanting to enjoy more ‘green’ leisure activities and follow a healthier lifestyle, we help people to see the best of what Anglesey has to offer, without contributing too much to their carbon footprint, or even spending too much on petrol!”
Green Lane Bike Tours take cyclists on ‘a great day out on a bike’ along specifically designed, easy and quiet routes on the island. Each route has several interesting places to visit, as well as plenty of stops to enjoy the view, and enjoy the surrounding wildlife.
The five-day, four ride package comprises:
Thursday 14 April
St Cwyfan, the Church in the Sea.
This is a lovely quiet, rural ride, covering many centuries of the Island’s history. You’ll see how building Malltraeth Cob changed the shape and nature of Anglesey, cycle through one of the island’s oldest and most successful private estates, and across an old route through the dunes and cross a pack-horse bridge to Aberffraw, the seat of the ancient Princes of Gwynedd. It’s then a short cycle to the coast and the iconic St Cwyfan’s, the Church now surrounded by the sea.
The 22 mile tour then turns inland and visits the Riverside Café, a favourite with cyclists and walkers!
Pedal to Penmon Guided Bike Tour is a great opportunity to explore the south eastern corner of Anglesey! This is a shorter route, at 11.5 miles as there’s more to explore!
Skirting around the back of Beaumaris, the tour offers some unusual views of the castle. Your guide will share stories about the area’s medieval past as the small group cycles out to Trwyn Du and its lighthouse. Having visited the ruins of Penmon priory, Penmon church with its collection of Celtic crosses and the some of the best examples of Norman architecture in this part of north Wales, the tour continues to Trwyn Du or Black Point and the lovely Pilot House Café, before visiting well-hidden and little-known ‘castle’ on our return.
Llanddwyn Island. Llanddwyn beach and island are a popular destination, but on the guided Bike Tour takes a quieter approach. Cycling from Llangefni offers a totally flat and quite spectacular ride along Lôn Las Cefni and Malltraeth Cob, to access forest tracks towards the beach.
Participants have time to explore Ynys Llanddwyn island home to Dwynwen, Wales’ patron saint of lovers, and later, her church and shrine.
Easter Sunday is a free day.
Easter Monday 18 April
Once the home of the ancient Druid order, Anglesey has a rich legacy from prehistory, with more ancient monument per square mile than any other part of Britain.
This lovely 14 mile rural cycle visits five prehistoric sites including the iconic Bryn Celli Ddu burial chamber, to give you a glimpse of that legacy.
