Cycling
 
The area around Rhosneigr consists for miles of undulating farmland and countryside, riddled with lanes and farm tracks. Cycling through this landscape is thoroughly enjoyable and with a little forward planning you can avoid even moderately busy roads.


A good example of a day's cycling is the "Giach" tour, a fully signposted cycle route commencing in nearby Aberffraw:-

Starting at the Lleys Llewelyn Heritage and Countryside Centre, the route takes you inland past Llyn Coron lake to the Din Dyfol ancient monument. From there it's on to Henblas Country Park, where there is a wide range of family activities including falconry, sheepdog displays, tractor tours, an indoor adventure playground and pony rides.

Heading back to the coast, the next stop is the Malltraeth and Cefni Estuary, part of the Newborough National Nature Reserve, famous for birdwatching. The wildlife artist Charles Tunnicliffe lived here for many years.

The final stage is back to Aberffraw via the Abeffraw Dunes, a large expanse of common land rich in wildlife. A long and sandy beach awaits those walking along the estuary at the end of the tour.

The Giach tour is 18 miles long although a shorter version (11 miles) is also signposted.

When cycling in the countryside it is important to remember the following -
 
Exercise care and attention always.
Ride along narrow lanes in single file and always allow vehicles to pass.
Set out in good time to finish before dusk.
Wear light clothing and take wet weather gear with you.
Take some high energy food and liquid refreshment.
Check your bike and take a puncture repair kit!
