Starting on the Welsh border, in the historic Roman city of Chester, this ride takes you through 84 miles of picturesque countryside…and up and down 3 of the highest passes in North Wales! Starting in Chester and finishing in Bangor.

The ride takes you through Betws-y-Coed. Betws is one of the honeypot locations in Snowdonia. It lies in the Snowdonia National Park, in a valley near the point where the River Conwy is joined by the River Llugwy and the River Lledr. The day also includes passing by the highest pub in Wales; The Sportsman’s Arms up at 433m on the Denbigh Moors.

One of the most famous of the 3 peaks you’ll climb is Pen-y-Pass a mountain pass in Snowdonia. Situated at the high point of the Llanberis Pass at an altitude of 359m.
