Lon Las Cymru, the 251 mile cycling challenge from Holyhead to Cardiff or Chepstow, takes in a wide variety of memorable landscapes and pastoral lanes of Anglesey to the valleys of South Wales., passing through the magnificent National Parks of Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons.
The northern half of the route shown on this map connects the Severn Valley in the heart of Wales to Holyhead and Angelsey using minor roads, railway paths, forestry tracks and ancient coach roads. Some of its route follows the trackbed of former railway lines, such as Lon Las Menai, Lon Eifiona and the Mawwdach estuary below the foothills of Cadair Idris.
There are inevitably tough challenges as the route crosses the Snowdonia National Park and the Cambrian Mountains. Some stretches here are quite remote with some distance between bike shops and other stores, so check you have sufficient clothing, supplies, spares and tools before embarking on this ride.
If you are looking to tackle the trail over several days it can easily be broken down into shorter sections with plenty of places to stay along the way.
