Re: Lon Las Cymru to Taunton

Personally I would not miss out Ynys Mon (Anglesey) but you might want to make some diversions to the coast which is the best bit. There are little bits of cycle track all over N. Wales so they some times come up without knowing about them:o) e.g. Llanwnda to Trevor on the Llyn
There are so many variations as you go south, it depends on how careful you want to be to have done the route. I like following my nose! Some of the route e.g. from Porthmadog to Barmouth does seem to twist around a bit to keep off the main road, but it is well worth while following exactly as you get fantastic views (goes right passed my house as well ) ) It is all very hilly though! But luckily the Brewit bridge should be back in operation by next year, saving 9 miles.
Hope you enjoy it all its a great area.

If you already have a route planned to Tilbury, you could detour to the Dartford crossing, where there's a free shuttle service to take cyclists across the river. There's a cycle path alongside the M25 from Thurrock to the collection point on the north side. Not the most scenic route though...

Hi. another vote for the cycle route alongside the river Lea and then maybe cross the river Thames on the Woolwhich ferry and follow the Thames path towards Canterbury... regards Nomisp
