Lôn Las Menai

Family Cycling

A pleasant cycleway connecting the historic town of Caernarfon with the village of Felinheli. The route runs along the southern shore of the Menai Strait with great views across to Anglesey. One of the main points of interest is Plas Menai, the National Watersports Centre for Wales, which is situated approximately halfway the cycleway. There is a mountain bike track here which is open to the public and free of charge. There are looped trails of varying difficulty, linking up to over 1km of riding. It is possible to hire an instructor and/or a mountain bike if need be.

The architecture of Caernarfon is dominated by its mighty 13th century Castle – this impressive World Heritage site is also well worth visiting if you have the time.
Recent improvements have seen the entire route given a tarmac surface and all gates en-route removed. This is a mostly gentle route suitable for all abilities and fitness. The section of road leaving Felinheli is quite steep, but otherwise you can just coast along without too much effort.
The route can easily be connected with Lôn Eifion, a 20km cycleway which runs south from Caernarfon to Bryncir.

Approach:

Depending on which way you wish to do the there-and-back route, the route can be started at the sea front in the village of Felinheli (free parking), close to the pub, Y Gardd Fon or from the Galeri and Victoria Dock area in Caernarfon.
