If you enjoy cycling then Anglesey has several circular routes that may appeal to you. Each route allows you to marvel at the fantastic scenery that Anglesey has to offer, whilst providing ample opportunities to spot some of the islands beautiful wildlife.
In the whole of the UK there are only 9 national cycle paths - rather surprisingly two of these paths cross Anglesey. In recent years Anglesey County Council has spent £2million creating a cycle path that links the two national paths that cross the island. In addition to these paths, Anglesey has four formal cycling routes, each named after a particular bird. The Hebog (Falcon) trail actually circles Tyddyn Isaf so is the most convenient to cycle if you don’t want to drive to your starting point, however, all four of the circular routes are worth exploring. There are also two marked point-to-point rides and an abundance of quiet country lanes so Anglesey is definitely a cyclists dream.
