Tips

    Wonderful mountain road that follows the A5 from Llyn Ogwen, past Tryfan and up the valley to the junction with the A4086 at Capel Curig. Then follows the A4086 past Plas-y-Brenin national outdoor centre with Moel Siabod to the south to the Pen-y-Gwryd hotel at the road junction. Turn right to ride over Pen-y-pass or stay on the road down the valley to Beddgellet.

    A beautifully rolling section featuring some of the most astounding views in Snowdonia. See all the lakes and mountains from the wide rolling roads.

    Amazing mountain views in nice weather. Completely the opposite if it’s windy & wet though!!
