PorthPenrhyn, once a busy port exporting slate from Penrhyn Quarry. From here I rode to Bangor Pier, almost all on cycle paths. Picture69.jpg

Bangor Pier. Just before the pier, on the corner is a wonderful real ale pub, the Tap and Spiel, very popular with students, that serves really good food. Picture70.jpg

From Bangor Pier, I cycled up Garth Hill, again on cycle path.

I followed the Garth Road, with the Menai Straits on the right.

Instead of going up to Ffridd Road and following the official Route 5, I carried on, passed Bangor City FC and the university’s Normal Site, to Menai Bridge. Picture74.jpg

The view of the Straits from Thomas Telford’s bridge. It was really windy so I walked across.

I had made it, on a very windy October’s day to Menai Bridge, Anglesey. I was really pleased with the way my Wisper had performed. I still had three bars of battery left.

According to my OS App, I had travelled 25.19 miles. My total elevation was 1779 feet, and the highest point was 266 feet above sea level.
The week earlier, I had ridden from Penrhyn Bay to Chester in one day and then, with this ride I had ridden from Penrhyn Bay to Anglesey, so I had completed all the route in these two rides.

As well as cycling this route, during the summer I walked from Chester to Beaumaris on Anglesey, following the Wales Coast Path. Picture79.jpg Picture78.jpg
