North wales
on: March 02, 2017, 08:49:20 PM
Hi, I've just picked up my new Blue xr
I'm staying a few nights near Wrexham in April & would like to ride some nice twisty roads on days out.
Could anybody  recommend some decent routes please?
Cheers Dave

One of my fvourite routes.....Take the A483/A5 from wrexham down to Lynclys. At Lynclys take the A495/B4396/B4391 to Bala.

From Bala take the A4212 as far as a right turn onto the B4391 to Festiniog. From there do a loop around Bedgellert, Llanberis, Capel Curig and Betws y coed. From Betws y take the A5 towards Chester taking A5104 towards Llandegla. Before Llandegla take the A542 over the horseshoe pass and back down towards the A483 (Wrexham).

Usually head for Ponderosa or Betws-y-coed for lunch, A49 gets hammered from the M56,  zig zag where I can.
Shift worker so days off in the week a plenty.
