Some sections of path have been specifically designed with cyclists in mind

Several sections of the Wales Coast Path are designated sections of the National Cycle Network. 

This offers a great opportunity to explore the Path in a way which is both good for your health and environmentally friendly.  These routes are mostly flat, traffic free and on a hard surface and are perfect for individuals, groups and families.

There are plenty of opportunities to get off your bike, visit attractions and engage in seaside activities.  These routes pass through the following major towns and seaside resorts (where refreshments are never far away along the North Wales coast including:

  • Prestatyn,
  • Rhyl,
  • Colwyn Bay,
  • Llandudno,
  • Caernarfon,
  • Llanelli,
  • Swansea.

Please note that, away from these sections, the majority of the Wales Coast Path is on Public Footpaths and other routes upon which to cycle is to trespass unless specific permission has been granted by the landowner.

However, there are still many routes in the coastal areas which can be enjoyed by cyclists as well as dedicated mountain bike trails which can be accessed nearby.  Find out more about other other cycling routes near the Wales Coast Path.
