15th July 2017 and 12th October(to Menai)
Part 3 Penmaenmawr to Abergwyngregyn
The café on the promenade at Penmaenmawr. Here I had a latte and it was proper coffee. One cyclist had a monster breakfast and it was huge. Unfortunately, this cafe is closed during the winter. The one at Rhyl Hub is open and does a roaring trade.
At the end of the promenade at Penmaenmawr and Route 5 takes you up, under the A55, to the top end of the village.
The top end of the village. From here you make your way along the quiet street to the A55, where you rejoin the cycle track which takes you over the road tunnel.
Here you can see the bridge that carries the Coast Path and Route 5 across the A55.
A view from the bridge. The Great Orme, Llandudno and Little Orme in the distance. Conwy Mountain and hidden behind the mountain, Conwy.
The cycle path and Coast Path. At one point, the path is directly over the new tunnel.
What used to be the A55 before the new road was built. This road takes you to Llanfairfechan. You carry straight on at the traffic lights.
However, a pleasant diversion is to turn right just after here, go down Shore Road, and turn left to go along the seafront.
At the end, you can make your way back to the centre of Llanfairfechan and turn right at the traffic lights.
The sea front at Llanfairfechan, which you will miss if you do not turn down Shore Road or turn right at the lights.
Again, what used to be the A55. From here, the cycle path drops down onto the A55, but you are allowed to ride along quite a wide pavement to Abergwyngregyn.
