Despite being a relatively new creation in comparison with other councils and constituencies in Wales, it's certainly a distinct area brimming with history, landscapes and variation. The valley is at the foot of many of Wales' finest dead-end, off the beaten track climbs, and also includes tourist hotspots such as Llandudno, Conwy and Betws y Coed.

    Dringfa o Ysbyty Ifan i Ffynnon Eidda

    Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)

    A great climb from the quiet, pleasant village of Ysbyty Ifan to the Migneint moorland. Not too difficult a climb, and the standard of the road is excellent in places. Ffynnon Eidda marks the end of the climb, from which you can enjoy a descent towards Bala, Blaenau Ffestiniog or Penmachno.

    Ffynnon Eidda

    Road Cycling Highlight

    Ffynnon Eidda, which no longer acts as a fountain unfortunately, is a perfect place for cyclists to stop and appreciate the vast surrounding countryside. On the well, it says 'Drink and be thankful' which is an important and memorable message! To reach it, you have to climb from all four directions; from Bala, Blaenau Ffestiniog (and Allt Goch), Ysbyty Ifan and Cwm Penmachno. On a clear day, it is possible to see far; to the sea on the north coast and the sea at Porthmadog.

    Climb to Nebo, down to Pentrefoelas

    Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)

    Tiring climb up through the trees to Nebo, but plenty of shade to keep off the sun, quiet with places to stop. Well worth the views once out on the moor, last view back to Siabod and the Glyderau before heading over the moor on rolling tarmac, and enjoying the gentle gradient down to Pentrefoelas to pick up speed again. Nice looking cafe on other side of A5 too.

    The Great Orme beach and Mountain

    Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)

    The Great Orme is a mountain on the north coast of Wales, north-west of the town of Llandudno. Referred to as Cyngreawdr Fynydd by the 12th-century poet Gwalchmai ap Meilyr, its English name derives from the Old Norse word for sea serpent.

    Sychnant Pass

    Road Cycling Highlight

    A fantastic little climb that is a slightly detour road compared to the coastal path, but definitely worth it. Yes, it is steep at times, but at the top the view back over where you came and beyond the sea is worth it.

    Cwm Penmachno climb

    Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)

    A pig of a climb! Steep for most of the climb from the first moment at the junction with the telephone box. Slightly easier for a while after the first cattle grid, but it is steep until the end beyond the second cattle grid, and soon it feels like a different world on the Migneint. Finishing near Ffynnon Eidda, where the words 'drink and be thankful' - you will need water and climbing legs for this.

    Cowlyd climb

    Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)

    According to Simon Warren, there should be a government health alert for this climb from Trefriw. It is endlessly steep - at least 14% - throughout the 3km. The nature around you is a just reward for the torture experienced. Is the Cowlyd or Bwlch y Groes the hardest in Wales?

  • Cwm Eigiau climb

    Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)

    Another of the challenging valley climbs starts at Tal y Bont. It is a steep climb for most of the 3km before a gate ends torture. After the second end gate to the yard, the gradient slows down slightly giving the opportunity to enjoy the views.

  • Bwlch y Ddeufaen

    Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)

    One of the many challenging climbs of the Conwy valley, Bwlch y Ddeufaen starts steeply for a long time from Tal y Bont, before easing slightly and ending in style. Great views over the valley that welcome you and a stone to mark the summit.
