Enjoy the delights of cycling across Anglesey, with it's quite roads and fine views of the Snowdonian ranges. Don't worry, there's no serious climbing on this ride, as once you hit the mainland, you will follow the North Wales coast, using well engineered cycle paths to skirt the cycling-unfriendly A55.
Cross the Menai Straits on both of the spectacular bridges, Telford's Menai Bridge on the way off Anglesey and Stephenson's Britannia Bridge on the way back.
Refreshments shouldn't be a problem on this ride, with holiday resorts all along the coast, although you might find Anglesey is more sparcely served by shops and cafes.
