Monday 29th July. Holyhead to Towyn. 60 Miles.

Well that was a really enjoyable day! I’ve been following the national cycle route 5 for most of the day. Apart from when it went around the houses!

Most of it has been traffic free and has stuck to the coast, well since Bangor anyway.

Sunny start to the day

There’s been a few steep hills, but generally it’s been pretty flat.

I must admit that, towards the end today it got busy with pedestrians, but they have as much right to be there as anybody else. I just wish they were a bit more courteous!

Apparently this cycle route runs from Holyhead to Reading, which is roughly the route I was thinking of taking home. Not too sure if it goes via Birmingham though, I might try and look tonight.

The cycle route has been like this for much of the day

Hideous campsite tonight, very big and very noisy! The favourite pastime seems to be, let’s feed the seagulls! I hope they all get crapped on as a consequence!

There seems to be loads of caravan parks here, but very few campsites! At least it’s only for one night, and I always get my own back in the morning, at 5am! If people keep me awake!

  1. If you can get through to Reading, that would be good.
    Nice picture of the camp site. People just won’t get out of the way for bikes. Your heading with the map shows a stripped down bike with dropped handlebars. Did you ever ride that?
