Thursday 14 April
On Thursday 14 April, we’ll guide you to 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 tide will be low, so we can walk across the beach to visit the island.
We then cycle inland to return to our start via a different route, and via the Riverside Café, a favourite with cyclists and walkers! This is a delightful 22 mile cycle with great sea views and views towards the Llyn peninsular.
Why not take up our Pedal to Penmon Guided Bike Tour on Friday April 15, for 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 today!
We’ll provide an alternative view of this popular corner of Anglesey. Skirting around the back of Beaumaris for 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. On the way we stop to visit 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 par of north Wales, St Seiriol’s well and the later dovecote.
We pause at Trwyn Du or Black Point and the lovely Pilot House Café, before visiting well-hidden and little-known ‘castle’ on our return.
Easter Saturday, April 16 is for heading out to Llanddwyn Island. Llanddwyn beach and island are a popular destination, but on our route, we take a quieter approach. Cycling from Llangefni, we have a totally flat and quite spectacular ride along Lôn Las Cefni and Malltraeth Cob, to access forest tracks towards the beach.
You have time to explore Ynys Llanddwyn island before our return journey. Legend has it that the island was home to Dwynwen, Wales’ patron saint of lovers, and later, her church and shrine.
Road tyres are not advised as part of the route uses stony forest tracks.
Easter Sunday is a free day.
After a day of rest, why not join us for our adventurous Prehistoric Anglesey Guided Bike Tour on 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.
We have selected five prehistoric sites including the iconic Bryn Celli Ddu burial chamber, to give you a glimpse of that legacy.
This lovely rural cycle along the Menai Strait, then turns inland along the Braint valley to visit burial chambers, standing stones and Romano-British earthworks, conjuring up images of an earlier world.
Please note that there is some walking through fields which can be muddy and can contain livestock involved in visiting some of the sites on the tour. There is also a short ‘off-road portion, so road tyres are not ideal, but this portion (under half a mile) can be walked.
