National Cycle Routes

Let’s face it, not everyone is into extreme mountain biking. We don’t all have a thing for mud and we don’t necessarily look good in lycra.

We prefer to cycle to be nice and relaxed – and fairly flat. And sometimes we like to make a day of it and bring the kids along. Which brings us to the National Cycle Route 84, which runs from Rhyl inland to the cathedral city of St Asaph. Most of it is traffic-free and much of it runs along the banks of the rivers Clwyd and Elwy.

The route passes through Glan Morfa community woodland in Rhyl with its 2,500 newly planted trees and large population of lapwings and skylarks.

Then it reaches North Wales’s newest nature reserve at Rhuddlan after following the scenic east bank of the Clwyd. At that point you have a decision to make.

You can either head on to St Asaph – or turn it into a circular ride by returning via the Prestatyn-Dyserth Way and National Route 5 along the prom back into Rhyl. Either way you get to see an awful lot of water. And you’ll have worked up quite an appetite.
