This 20km loop is one of the best rides in the Clwydian Hills. It starts at the Pump House car park close to the tiny village of Cilcain to the north of Moel Famau.
We start a long and gradual climb, first on track then onto grassy bridleway and single track, up to meet the Offa's Dyke Path just below the summit of Moel Famau. No mean feat but the reward is some superb grassy doubletrack before a sinuous moorland singletrack bring us down to the village of Llangynhafal and our stop for lunch.
This descent is fast and fun but do watch out for walkers on their way up.
Don't eat too much lunch would be my advise. Our return leg follows road and track up and up towards, and within touching distance of Moel Arthur. To our right is Moel Llys-y-coed and we'll loop right round the mountain before some of the best singletrack North Wales has to offer takes us down to the reservoir at Garth. From here a couple of kms on hardpack takes us back to the car park to conclude an excellent ride.
What to bring
Food & drink
Please bring plenty to eat and drink. Remember that it will be early November when we do this ride so something warm to eat for lunch would be a good idea as well as a plentyful suply of energy snacks.
THERE IS NOWHERE TO BUY FOOD AND DRINK AT/NEAR THE START OR EN-ROUTE.
