The best Anglesey bike ride routes
Because our island is filled with awe-inspiring beauty, you’ll often find large groups of people getting together and cycling! And these are the best routes to take when you’re in the area.
Circular Route around Anglesey
As we are an island, one of the most popular cycle routes is to bike around the island in a circle. This usually takes around 6 hours, so it’s not one for the beginner cyclist, but it can certainly be a pleasant experience if you’re an avid cycler.
It’s just over 58 miles in total, and if you think this could be the cycle route for you be sure to take a look here for some further information.
Lôn Las Cefni
If you’re looking for a cycle route that is full of stunning nature, then this could be perfect for you. This amazing cycling journey is eleven miles in total, and is thought of to be an easy to medium cycling path in terms of difficulty.
You’ll also find a distinct lack of traffic on the roads this route takes, making it a safe cycling path too.
The path begins at Malltraeth and ends at Cefni Reservoir – so if you’re looking for a lovely cycling day out then this could be perfect.

Llynnon Mill via Church Bay Westerly
The first thing to do on this route is journey to LLynnon Mill, and from here you’ll be able to begin another circular bike route.
The great thing about this cycling path is that sometimes you’ll be able to explore the gorgeous coast and sometimes you will also be inland too – ensuring you get the best of both worlds!
It’s also recommended that you do this route anti-clockwise, simply because there is quite a steep hill along route.

Top tips for cycling with all the family
If you take your family cycling with you, then there are a few key things to bring with you and consider before you head out.
Make sure everyone in your party is confident on a bike. You don’t want to get half way around a loop only for your someone to insist they can’t go on anymore! Think about which route would be best suited to all of your group before heading out for a day of cycling activity!
Another important aspect of any cycling trip is to choose a bike you’re comfortable on. You want one that’s perfectly suited to you, because if you head out on a long cycling journey you don’t want to be uncomfortable. Make sure the seat is the right height and that you can sit on it for a while!
If you’re going to head out with your family, it’s always best to ensure they’re kitted out with safety gear. Picking helmets that are bright colours is also a good choice to help traffic know that you’re on cycling in the area.
It’s also a good idea to ensure you have water and food on hand, perhaps in a backpack. From there you’ll be able to have refreshing breaks when you need them during your journey!
