The Conwy County section of the National Cycle Route 5 takes you along the North Wales coast. You will cycle through the following towns:

•  Rhyl
•  Kinmel Bay
•  Abergele
•  Colwyn Bay
•  Rhos-on-Sea
•  Llandudno
•  Conwy
•  Penmaenmawr

Most of the route takes you off road, with a short on-road section at Conwy, before returning to the off road seafront route. The route then takes you on-road and west along the coast through the seaside towns of Penmaenmawr and Llanfairfechan.

You will see stunning views of the Conwy River and Conwy Castle along the part of the route that takes you to Conwy through Llandudno. There is also a link to the Conwy RSPB Nature Reserve which you can find in Llandudno Junction.

Most of the off road sections of the route are also suitable for walkers and wheelchair users. If you get hungry or thirsty, there will be plenty of places to stop along the way.

When you arrive in the town of Llanfairfechan, the National Cycle Route 5 then takes you west until you reach the city of Bangor.
