NCN5 joins the A5 here in Bangor. Following the NCN5 into Bangor we didn't see any cycle route signs directing us to the city centre. By the time we'd reached here we were thinking we were never going to find Bangor. We got off our bikes ... [more]

One way road with two-way cycle lane.

Looks like a stone circle visible from NCN5.

NCN5 by the Menai Strait.

A rare sighting of cycle parking in these parts. Seems to be for a playground.

Shared use cycling.

NCN5 and NCN82

Dog walkers kindly hold back their beasts for us to pass.

This old railway line into Bangor is on NCN5.

This is where the on road route of the NCN5 joins the former railway line.

This quiet road is on the NCN5.

NCN5

Entrance to a National Trust property - with I think a transport museum inside. See #29495.

NCN5 seems rather steep here after the exertion of having to dismount and go through the hole in the wall, so we walked this bit.

This gate leads out on to a former main road, see #60392.

I couldn't believe that the NCN5 really does turn off the road and through that hole in the wall, so I took this panorama photo to help you believe me.

These big wide roads that have now been made redundant by the A55 feel eerily quiet. Any moment there's an expectation that large volumes of traffic will come, so we still used the narrow footway.

NCN5

The coach was from Germany and pulled a large trailer of bikes. All the occupants bar one seem to have gone for a spin around Angelsey, while the other prepared their lunch.

A quad bike and a dog was a friendly encounter on this quiet road on the NCN5.

No escape routes - we met a chelsea tractor (ie a big SUV) and there was barely enough space to squeeze past, it wasn't an unpleasant encounter but there were no niceties.

Quiet road on the NCN5.

A good view of Anglesey and Puffin Island from this quiet road on NCN5.

Happy again on the quiet roads of the NCN5.

NCN5 back on quiet roads again after a brief spell alongside the A55.

Fast, high volume motor traffic, with no protection is pretty horrible on this section of the NCN5 which is on a pavement cycleway for about half a mile.

The NCN5 goes onto a pavement cycleway adjacent to a dual carriageway. The signs here apologise for that!
