Cycle Steps
Start at Llanberis town and head up the challenging Llanberis Pass to the top of Pen Y Pass, over the top and down to Beddgelert past the beautiful lakes - especially nice in May/June when the Rhododendrens are out. When in Beddgelert you could get off your bikes for an hour or so and walk the spectacular Fishermans Walk down the glaslyn river. Then back on your bikes and up the gentle pass to Rhyd Ddu following the Highland Railway. Turn right at Waenfawr for Ceunant- from there you can look down over Menai straits and Anglesey. Then back to Llanberis for a well earned Fish & Chips!
Landmarks/Pubs for lunch/Sites to see?
Main villages on route are Llanberis itself and Beddgelert.

A bit out of practice so the climb out of llanberis was tough going but enjoyable. The views were great and the decent brilliant. Highly recommend.

Don''t get out on my bike as often as l''d like so not that fit, stopped a couple of times on the climb out of llanberis, but well worth it for the view from the top and great descent. Nice gentle ride after the initial climb and great scenary. Cycling time just under three hours with a couple of good stops. Did it in May, roads quite quiet.
