BSC2019: 40km Any Rider Any Bike Cycle to Conwy Castle (Sunday 10:30)
5 people attending
7 places left
An easy(ish) outing to Conwy Castle for some culture, cake and coffee. We will be cycling up one side of the valley from the campsite and back down the other! Entrance to the castle is optional and is approx £10. We will include a pub/cafe for lunch.
The route will be on roads all the way, so any bike will be suitable (even a Brompton if you are bonkers). There is a hill in the way on the the way out but the climb is fairly gradual, don't let it put you off. Should take under 2 hours to get to Conwy and the same for the return (though much flatter and easier).

Be mindful of the weather. Will is scared of the rain and the event may be cancelled if the weather is minging.

Food & drink
I usually try and include at least one pub and or cafe for tea/cakes/lunch. Bring plenty of snacks to keep you happy. The halfway point is Conwy so should be a few places to choose from.
