To conclude our 2020 touring season we return to Wales, a part of the world we love riding in, as can be shown by the fact that this will be our second visit of the year.
As with our tour in April 2020, we have two destinations, the first two nights will be in a 4* award winning Country Hotel overlooking the iconic Lake Vyrnwy followed by a further two nights on the Isle of Anglesey. Both hotels are ideally located for making the most of the surrounding riding routes and to sample excellent Welsh cuisine.
The meeting point on day one of the tour will be at our hotel at Lake Vyrnwy starting with a welcome dinner that evening, there is plenty to see and do in and around the hotel should you wish to arrive earlier during the day. The following morning we will take you on a cross border ride through the Welsh and Shropshire Marches with a visit to The Caban Coch dam in the Elan Valley and a photo stop overlooking the Clywedog Reservoir.
We leave Lake Vyrnwy to ride through the Snowdonia National Park to our next destination on the Isle of Anglesey which will be our base for the following two nights. Our route takes you on a scenic ride through Snowdonia with lunch on the Welsh Coastal Path on the Llyn Peninsula overlooking the Irish Sea and at the foot of Yr Eifl Mountain before arriving at our hotel which is located in the small seaside town of Beaumaris on the Isle of Anglesey overlooking the Menai Straits and the Snowdonia Mountains which yield stunning views as the sun both sets and rises over an ever changing landscape.
On the Saturday you can take time-out exploring the town, maybe visit the castle or take a boat trip to Puffin Island or you can join us on our ride-out which takes you into the heart of the Snowdonia National Park riding over the Nant Ffrancon and Crimea Passes before crossing the Denbigh Moors with lunch at the Llechwydd Slate Caverns. We return to the island for an afternoon visit to Tacla Taid, Anglesey’s Transport museum before enjoying some of the quiet roads as we return to our hotel.
Our tour concludes on the Sunday with a ride along the Marine Drive toll road, a four mile scenic route around the base of the Great Orme headland. We head into the Conwy River valley and over the Horseshoe Pass near Llangollen before arriving at our dispersal point for the tour on the outskirts of Whitchurch, Shropshire.
