Hike & eBike – 24

Friday 17 May, 2024

Hike & eBike

A walk with a biking element – we will be providing you with e-bikes (battery-assisted bikes).  Essentially there will be some 3 – 4 miles of walking, and about 6 miles of biking.

This is an e-bike introduction on quiet lanes and roads with stunning views of the Conwy Valley, its lakes and surrounding hills and mountains. (Please note that there will be no technical terrain, but there are steep hills both up and down, so participants need to be reasonably confident and competent cyclists.)

The walkers will be accompanied by two of our leaders, and the cyclists will be accompanied by FFIT Conwy e-bike instructors.

There will be two groups of up to 10 people –

  •  The first group will ride by e-bike from Trefriw, ending up at Llyn Geirionydd (in the photo).  After a lunch stop (with the second group) we will swap and walk back to Trefriw by quiet footpaths.
  • The second group will largely do this in reverse, i.e. walk up to our lunch stop at Llyn Geirionydd, then use the e-bikes to return to Trefriw.

Note that if you do not want to ride and walk in the same footwear, you will need to bring a second pair. You will need to ride with your rucksack anyway.

We will provide helmets (but you’re welcome to bring your own).

Duration:  All day.  Please bring a packed lunch.

Walking distance:  about 4 miles

Grade:  Moderate

Please be aware that this is a rural area and that all our walks take us out into the countryside where some parts of paths and tracks will be uneven and sometimes wet and slippery underfoot; it isn’t like walking on pavements!

Departure time:  10:30 a.m. from Trefriw Village Hall (LL27 0JH, SH781631)
Refreshments will be available in the Hall both before and after your walk. (See ‘our cafe’.)  Please stay and socialise!

This particular event has been made possible through funding from the Carneddau Landscape Partnership. Thank you!

Walk Leaders:  Brian Watson & Marianne Siddorn (assisted by 3 eBike leaders)
