The Tour De Mon Canol is 77 miles of stunning riding around one of the UK’s most beautiful islands. With such a varied route there is always something to keep your mind off your legs, don't be fooled that Anglesey is flat! Take the coast road out of Holyhead and enjoy the coastline and the views out to sea. After just 10 miles into your ride you’ll have the chance to do the incredible Flying Mile timed section through RAF Valley and challenge yourself to see juts how fast you can go. After this you ride through rolling countryside and quaint villages on quiet country lanes. Make your way through Bryngwran, Gwalchmai, Bodfordd, Llanerchymedd, Moelfre and on to Amlwch and then cut inland slightly before heading back through Valley and back home to Holyhead.
