Anglesey has plenty of cycling routes to choose from, with a range of coastal, forest and mountain views.


So that you can continue to enjoy the stunning scenery of Anglesey in the winter months, we’ve put together some cycling routes more suited for the wetter weather. That way, when you inevitably get caught in the rain, it won’t ruin your cycle.

If you’re on the search for a route suitable for the whole family, this cycle loop is for you.
