Crossing needed from service road to the new cycleway

Westbound cyclists on NCN route 5 can loop through Talybont to briefly get off the former main road.

Cyclists on NCN route 5 are supposed to rejoin the old main road here.

One-way system with an odd cycle lane on the right side - cyclists for the town centre and the Lôn Adda route should presumably dismount to use the crossing then continue on the shared-use path.

The traffic-free (in the daytime) main shopping street of Caernarfon

Crossing from disused bridge to the steam railway station, Bala

This could easily be made into a shared-use route from central Bala to the steam railway station.

Route parallel to the main A road through Bala

This could be a useful cycle crossing

The LÔN ADDA route goes round the back of the retail park.

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]

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

This quiet road is on the NCN5.


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

Route back onto the ncn5 at the end here through a gap on the right.

Bit of a maze of small streets here, not sure if this is the official ncn5 or not! There are small signs on the lamppost.

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.

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.

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.

Happy again on the quiet roads of the NCN5.

Finally back on asphalt after the long slog of the detour out of Coed y Brenin

Pedestrianised streets in Caernarfon's walled town; the National Cycle Network route turns left on the far side of the walls.

There are two roads in former watercourses (later a railway?) outside Caernarfon's city walls.
