Starting Point & Postcode

Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.

Breeze Bike Rides in Cheshire West and Chester

This is a longer ride along the North Wales costal path. There is 34 miles of cycle path along the North Wales coast between Talacre and Penmaenmawr. Today we will be starting at Prestatyn railway station going to Llandudno and back. It is mostly hard surfaced and nearly continuously off-road, apart from a 2-3 mile gap at Llandudno, a 260 yard gap on a main road at Rhos on Sea it is part of National Cycle Route 5

The route passes through the resorts of Prestatyn, Rhyl, Kinmel Bay, Pensarn (Abergele), Llanddulas, Colwyn Bay, Rhos-on-Sea, Penrhyn Bay, and finishing in Llandudno. It goes along the promenades or seafronts at all these places now including Llandudno, until recently Conwy's cabinet have contentiously refused to rescind an ancient bylaw, so old it almost predates the invention of the bicycle, and was always used in an attempt to ban cycling on the promenade.

Obviously there are fine and varied views of the coast and the sea, but also of the countryside, the Clwydian hills, the mountains of Snowdonia and the Great and Little Ormes

There are a couple of suggestions for getting to Prestatyn by train or by car:- There are some train options as follows:  Train from Chester to Prestatyn leaves Chester at 09.55 arrives at Prestatyn at 10.23 (price for return is £12.90 without railcard) OR train from Bidston to Prestayn (change at Shotton) at 09.32 arrives at Prestayn at 10.23 (same as the above)  price £15.90 return http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/

If you go by car with your bike and there is plenty of parking there (or I would suggest if you are going by car, park at the Offas Dyke cafe and we can meet you there). I you can let me know your preference that would be great so I will know where you are planning to be either the station or the OD cafe  http://www.nationaltrail.co.uk/offasdyke  

If you need to ask any questions please call me on 07729 114055 or email me at sara.braidwood@sky.com

Wearing a helmet is advisable; if you don’t have one please do not to worry you can still take part.  Depending on the weather please be ready for wet weather and wear appropriate clothing, also please bring snacks to eat and a lunch, a flask of hot soup is also a good idea!

Look forward to seeing you there!

Meet the Champions

  • Sara Braidwood
    Sara Braidwood Hi, I am Sara Braidwood and I have been a BREEZE champion for nearly 2 years.I am 47 years old and I love being out and about on my bike and I enjoy being part of Breeze and seeing ladies enjoy the rides and come back for more. I only started cycling 4 years ago and now I cant imagine being without my bike.
  • Lynne Connolly
    Lynne Connolly I started riding again with Breeze in 2012. After quite a long spell of not riding, I'm glad to say its even more fun than I remember! Breeze rides really sparked my love of being out on a bike enjoying new routes, fresh air and meeting new people too. So excited was I that I did the training to be a ride leader and now have no excuse for not getting out!
    I hope to share this enjoyment and look forward to meeting you on a Breeze ride soon.

    Jacky Lowe I only got back into cycling last year, thanks to local Breeze rides. Our local co-ordinator inspired me to train as a breeze champion and I'm a huge fan of the Breeze program; I'd never have been so happy on my bike without Breeze!
    I'm planning to ride the sport relief 50 in March, which is something I never thought I'd do!
