Hey everyone, my name is Saffy Sprocket and welcome back to another episode of Biker Guides. Today we’re going to be taking a look at North Wales by Motorcycle!
Now there is nothing quite like the feeling of being out on the open road, and exploring North Wales by motorcycle is an experience you won’t soon forget. The winding roads, stunning natural scenery, and wide-open spaces make it the perfect destination for a motorcycle ride. Whether you’re looking for a leisurely day trip or an epic adventure, there’s something for everyone in this part of Wales. Let’s take a look at some of the best routes to explore when you’re riding your bike through North Wales.
North Wales by motorcycle
The Coastal Route
If you’re looking for breath-taking views and plenty of opportunities to take pictures, then the coastal route is an absolute must-do. This route takes you along some of Wales’ most stunning coastline, with sweeping views of the sea to keep your eyes entertained as you go. Although this route isn’t particularly long (it’s only about 40 miles from start to finish), it will definitely leave a lasting impression on your heart and mind.
The Great Orme
The Great Orme is one of the highlights of this route, named after its unique shape that looks like a head. The road itself is fairly steep and a lot of fun to ride your motorcycle around but try to avoid popular tourist times like bank holidays and weekends as it can get very congested. The Great Orme is a lot of fun to visit as it’s home to some of Wales’ most interesting wildlife with seals, dolphins, and porpoises all regularly spotted in the waters. There are a lot of fun little country lanes you can veer off and explore too.
The Horseshoe Pass
If you’re after something a bit more challenging and exciting than just a coastal ride, then be sure to try out the Horseshoe Pass near Llangollen in Denbighshire. This windy pass offers riders plenty of twists and turns as they ascend through the mountainside, providing thrilling views along the way! Make sure that you take your time when riding this pass—you don’t want to rush your experience here!
Llanberis Pass Snowdonia National Park
For experienced riders who are looking for some truly epic scenery, then head over to Snowdonia National Park and tackle the Llanberis Pass. This challenging mountain road is full of tight bends and sharp turns that will test even the most experienced riders—but don’t let that dissuade you! The views at the top are worth all of your hard work getting up there. Plus, once you reach the peak, there are plenty of places nearby where you can stop for lunch or just admire the view from afar.
No matter what kind of rider you are or what type of experience you’re after, North Wales has something for everyone who loves hitting the open road on two wheels. From leisurely coastal rides to adrenaline-pumping mountain passes, North Wales has it all! So grab your helmet and hit those open roads for an unforgettable adventure that will stay with you forever!
