    Dyfi Forest climb from Aberangell

    Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)

    Very steep with many signs warning you of that, especially the last challenging climb to the summit where you can appreciate great views.

    Bwlch Tal y Llyn

    Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)

    True slog definition. A climb you won't appreciate - especially after a long day in the saddle.

    Hirnant (Rhosygwaliau side)

    Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)

    Just under 2km in length, this climb averages 8% but towards the top ratchets up to well over 10% to maximise the suffering

    Climb to Llynnoedd Cregennen from Arthog

    Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)

    Very difficult climb - steep throughout, and in some places the legs and lungs will be begging for a break. That break comes with the need to go through a gate - something you won't have to worry about when you conquer the Cambrian Coast Sportive - and then another challenging finale past the yellow bin and waiting for you with coastal views towards Barmouth and the tranquility of Cregennen lakes.

    Cwm Maethlon/Happy Valley

    Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)

    This serene lane offers a fantastic, tarmac-surfaced ride through Happy Valley alongside Afon Dyffryn-gwyn. This entire segment is a climb but it’s fairly steady and gentle, with stunning views of the hills and mountains on either side. A mixture of woodlands, farmland and open hillsides make for rather bucolic landscapes.

    While not traffic-free, there’s very little traffic on this road as it mainly serves farms with a more major road running parallel to the south.

    The 'Gated' Road

    Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)

    A few gates marking farm boundaries give this road its name. A single track with good tarmac and beautiful views. At one point we saw a waterfall on the left and the road rising up like a ribbon to the right. All surrounded by mountains. Perfect riding.

    Snowdonia Ribbon Road

    Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)

    Just a beautiful road that rises and falls through the landscape and there are some impressive waterfalls below you.

    Ffordd Pen Llech (World's steepest street)

    Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)

    Ffordd Pen Llech is the steepest road in the world. The record was award in 2019. Unfortunately it's not possible to climb the hill up to the castle legally, it's a one way road going down to Harlech station.
