    On Stage 1, you’ll ride the Clwydian Way as you gradually climb from the north coast to the low hills of the Clwydian Range. From there, you head towards the Llangegla Forest and bike park (for more info, visit oneplanetadventure.com) before dropping down to the Llangollen canal, the River Dee, and finally

  • This was the best stage of the tour for me. From Bodfari to Ruthin on Clwydian hills it seemed there were endless tracks of fantastic quality. Also there was good cycling through Llandegla forest which made the climb a joy, then incredible views over the top to LLangollen

  • Is this doable on a gravel bike?

  • I don't think the route as published on Komoot is particularly suitable for a Gravel bike as it's a pretty tough mountain bike route. However there are road alternatives for some of the sections, although you would still need to do the Clywdian Hills and Llangegla Forest. The surface here is pretty good
