If you want to learn to corner or scrub in some tyres then this is the route for you! A great little route with some amazing corners that will challenge both beginners and seasoned riders, I do this route in the summer evenings where the roads are very quiet although a police presence is seen on the main roads, This is an amazing route which you will find yourself doing again and again!

Snowdonia Pass to Barmouth
North Wales > United Kingdom > Europe
July 18, 2017 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.0

This ride starts on the relatively easy A5 north, it cuts off at Knockin and passes though the Bala.
The B4397 is spectacular and falls into Balla. Stop at the lake side cafe and head south.
This route then cuts into Snowdonia following a single lane pass - if you thought the views where good prior to this just wait.
This pass can be accessed by all bikes but adventure bikes are recommeded as there are a LOT of sheep and a LOT of gravel.

Path Into Mordor : Bala - Ffestiniog
North Wales > United Kingdom > Europe
April 28, 2016 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

Went on a dry Sunday, taking this road with some friends on the way from Shrewsbury to Barmouth, and back. As you exit Bala the roads are sweeping and quick, and then there is a wide hairpin that goes over the river which feeds lake Tryweryn. When going over this particular bend you can get the knee down with ease, but as the trees open up you are susceptible to a few gusts of wind, so I wouldn't hoon it through this bend at all.

Turning right onto the B-road you find some utterly spectacular scenery. The rugged mountains in the background loom over like an evil villain's lair, and some decently twisty roads keep you entertained. Watch out for sheep around here.

As you get closer to Ffestiniog you pass over a small creek and a lonesome house, and after this there is a cattle grid, and then it slows down A LOT. The road is narrower and visibility is decreased as you get lower into the valley. Also no road markings, so you must keep your wits about you.

The road then junctions onto the A470, which leads you into the quaint little village of Ffestiniog, and there is a pub at the end of this route for you to stop at. They seem friendly enough there, they let us use their toilets.

Gogledd Cymru : Hawarden - Bala - Betws-y-Coed
North Wales ... > United Kingdom > Europe
May 9, 2015 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

A circular tour of some of North Wales' best motorcycling roads.

Spectacular scenery, good road surface and excellent corners.

Significant police presence on busier roads (A5, A5104, A525, A594) particularly at weekends and Bank Holidays.

Coast Road:Machynlleth to Barmouth
North Wales ... > United Kingdom > Europe
May 1, 2014 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

A ride of 2 halves. The first 10 miles to Aberdovey has flick/flack corners and is fun. The views over the Dovey estuary are spectacular but you won't have time to look at them as this section requires 100% concentration. Stop in Aberdovey for coffee & icecream. The next section takes in the coast road to Barmouth. It's a mini Pacific Coast Highway. If you want to admire the views pull in and stop. Again this needs 100% concentration. Beaches fish & chips in Barmouth are the best in Wales.

Hawarden-Bala-Trawsfynydd-Dolgellau-Bala-Hawarden
North Wales ... > United Kingdom > Europe
April 6, 2014 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Hawarden to Llandegla has lots of low speed twisting corners to warm up on. The A5104 to Corwen ups the pace with a nice mix of corners, faster sections and lovely scenery. Corwen to Bala is continually interesting with fast sections and some very twisty sections. Bala to Trawsfynydd is a legendary biking road, many sections are very fast with excellent visibility and high speed sweepers but do look out for traffic cops hiding in farm entrances even on quiet mid-week afternoons. Traws to Dolgellau has very long straight sections where high speed junkies can get their fix and the law abiding can enjoy fabulous views of the Rhinogs. Nearer to Dolgellau the road has recently been improved, the surface is excellent and provides many excellent mid-speed corners. Dolgellau to Bala is a joy to ride with a nice mix of twisties and sweepers and great scenery. There are lots of opportunities for refreshments along the way and bring a camera, the scenery is stunning.

A525 : Ruthin / Wrexham Road
North Wales ... > United Kingdom > Europe
January 24, 2012 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.0

A nice road, was quiet when I tried it yesterday, but then it is January so no tourist and few bikers. I saw not one Police car but remember, this is Wales and they are keen. Covers hills and valleys, quite nice to look at and plenty of pubs if you want to stop.

At the end of the marked route I took the A494 out as I was running out of daylight. The roads OK but frankly I didn't get any kick out of it. I will get back there when I have more time and work out a fuller route.
