Avanti Funding Enables Free E-Bike Sessions in Conwy Valley and North Wales Coast

Conwy Valley and North Wales Coast Community Rail Partnership, in collaboration with the Ffit team from Conwy Leisure Development, are thrilled to announce the launch of free e-bike sessions, made possible by funding from Avanti West Coast. These sessions aim to promote healthy and sustainable transportation options while exploring the picturesque landscapes of the region.

Beginner and intermediate sessions are available. Beginner Sessions: Participants will embark on an 11-mile ride along the cycle path from Bodlondeb to Penmaenmawr and back, or towards Llandudno/West Shore and back. These sessions are ideal for those new to cycling.

Intermediate Sessions: Riders will journey from Bodlondeb towards Rowen and Henryd, covering a 12-mile route along country roads. Please note that routes may vary slightly each week.

There are plenty of sessions for the local community and those visiting the area to get involved in

Mondays: February 5, 12, 19, March 4, 11, and 18. From 1pm – 3 pm

Thursdays: February 8, 15, 22, 29, March 7, 14, and 2. From 10 am – 12 pm and 1 pm – 3pm

Rides will start from Bodlondeb (near the cricket pitch).

All sessions take place over a 2-hour period and are suitable for individuals aged 14 years and older, regardless of fitness level. Helmets will be provided, and qualified staff will accompany riders throughout the experience.

We aim to connect people and places to opportunity, so what better way to enjoy some of the wonderful scenery the region has to offer by taking the train to Llandudno Junction and jumping on an e-bike.  Our thanks go out to the Community Rail Partnership for their energy and commitment to make this happen.
