A typical trail day will begin in the lovely, tourist town of Betws-Y-Coed with a good cup of coffee and a chat about the day. After checking bikes and helmets we will ride up a combination of quiet back lanes and forest tracks in to the Gwydir Forest and head down in to the Lledr valley via the famous Sarn Helen, an ancient Roman Road. From here, we will ride along the banks of the beautiful afon (Welsh for river) Lledr to the village of Dolwyddelan. Here we will take a break for lunch or a hot drink and a snack at the local shop.

We now head uphill again, into the forest and onto the lower flanks of the mighty, Moel Siabod. We descend down an exciting rocky, trail to Capel Curig and then down lovely, flowy woodland trails beside the spectacular Swallow Falls back to Betws-Y-Coed.

The ride is suitable for beginner to intermediate riders and is customisable to suit all skill and fitness levels. Routes are weather dependant and will be modified to suit conditions on the day. Distances and Ascent below are indicative.

Distance: 17.7 KM/11Miles

Total Ascent: 631m
