Blaenau Ffestiniog

Blaenau Ffestiniog

Cycle parking near the main bus stops, Bangor

Cycle parking on Turf Square, Caernarfon

Road on the former railway route through (below) Caernarfon

Cycle bridge and coastal route to bird reserve, Caernarfon

Cycle parking on the main square of Caernarfon

More parking for cars than cycles on the main square of Caernarfon - it could be so much more attractive!

Bollards on cut-through, Caernarfon

The traffic-free (in the daytime) main shopping street of Caernarfon

One-way system with an odd cycle lane on the right side - cyclists for the town centre and the Lôn Adda route should presumably dismount to use the crossing then continue on the shared-use path.

Roure sign for NCN route 8 by Caernarfon castle

Cycle parking at Porthmadog Harbour station is shared with other users.

Crossing from disused bridge to the steam railway station, Bala

Faded cycle route sign

Disused bridge leading to the steam railway station, Bala

Start of lakeside route, Bala

This could easily be made into a shared-use route from central Bala to the steam railway station.

Route parallel to the main A road through Bala

Cut-through in Bala

This could be a useful cycle crossing

Route parallel to the main A road through Bala - the two halves are one-way in different directions, but could easily be two-way for cycling.

Cycleway beside Lake Bala - there's far less debris on the layby.

Barriers (not that easy to circumvent - there's quite a step down to the left) on a designated cycle route.

CTC Winged Wheel, Bala

Effectively shared-use bath from Bala bridge to Llanfor.

End of path at Bala bridge

Effectiveky shared-use path looping around trees.

Cycle route signs

Effectively shared-use path by the A494 between Llanfor and Bala

This unusual road sign at the end of cycle path #Porthmadog makes me smile ? Is it actually in the @HighwayCodeGB ? https://t.co/jlUncgewMG

Section of the Tarw Du (prounounced Taroo Dee) mountain bike trail known as Pins and Needles at Coed-y-Brenin.

Cycleway between Caernarfon and Bangor.

Pretty nice cycleway out of Caernarfon towards Bangor.

NCN8 good view of the road and shared use cycleway out of Caernarfon's town centre.

City triangle in Caernarfon - those no entry signs hint at a oneway system in the town.

A pedestrian zone at certain times in Caernarfon.

Wheeled access ramp at Caernarfon castle.

A footbridge near Caernarfon castle.

Caernarfon end of the Lon Eifion trail.

The first few miles of the Lon Eifion trail from Caernarfon to Porthmadog run alongside the Welsh Highland Railway.

The Caernarfon end of the Lon Eifion trail on the old railway line to Porthmadog.

Very popular mountain biking centre - these are hire bikes parked while their users have lunch.

Taken at the end of our ride on Cyflym Coch trail. This was advertised as a challenging trail requiring higher levels of fitness and stamina with some technical ability. I found it extremely enjoyable on the full suspension mountain bike th ... [more]

This bit of the Cyflym Coch mountain bike trail is also on the NCN82. http://www.mbwales.com/en/content/cms/Centres/Coed_y_Brenin/Cyflym_Coch/Cyflym_Coch.aspx

The start of one of the mountain bike trails at Coed y Brenin.

Pedestrian area in Bangor.

We found it quite hard to work out how to get to the human part of Bangor on our bikes. It seems to be a horrible maze of big roads, one way systems and hills.

This extraordinary bilingual road sign attempts to explain to motorists how to merge lanes! Traffig yn ymuno Traffic merging

The A5 in Bangor.

The A5 in Bangor.

NCN5 joins the A5 here in Bangor. Following the NCN5 into Bangor we didn't see any cycle route signs directing us to the city centre. By the time we'd reached here we were thinking we were never going to find Bangor. We got off our bikes ... [more]

One way road with two-way cycle lane.

Looks like a stone circle visible from NCN5.

One way road with two way cycle lane.

One way road with contraflow. Van parked in the contraflow lane, driver lying across the wide seat having a sleep!

NCN5 by the Menai Strait.

A rare sighting of cycle parking in these parts. Seems to be for a playground.

Shared use cycling.

Footway alongside a main road in Bangor.

We got a bit lost from the NCN5 and found this way back onto the main road.

NCN5 and NCN82

Dog walkers kindly hold back their beasts for us to pass.

Road tunnel

NCN5 a former railway line passes under the mainline.

This old railway line into Bangor is on NCN5.

This is where the on road route of the NCN5 joins the former railway line.

This quiet road is on the NCN5.

NCN5

Entrance to a National Trust property - with I think a transport museum inside. See #29495.

Route back onto the ncn5 at the end here through a gap on the right.

Bit of a maze of small streets here, not sure if this is the official ncn5 or not! There are small signs on the lamppost.

NCN5 seems rather steep here after the exertion of having to dismount and go through the hole in the wall, so we walked this bit.

We welcome your feedback, especially to report bugs or give us route feedback.
