Help, i'm staying in Corris for a week after the bank holiday. The missus hopefully won't notice when I chuck the bike in the boot on top of the wellies and raincoats. Does anyone do any riding in mid wales/snowdonia and have any GPX tracks i can punt in the Garmin? Ta.

    Dog of Snowdon, though it is slightly north of your locations

    +1 for the dog. Some amazing climbs there. Worthy of the Alps !

    Llandudno is a good family place to visit with a stony beach, pier & a few shops & things to mooch around in. While you're there chuck in a few laps of the Gt Orme, and if you feel up to it end it with a climb to the top alongside the tram that ambles to the top - you'll have a few kids + adults wave at you as you go. For a finale enjoy the blast back down from top to bottom. Watch out for the traffic lights nr the edge of the town though.
