It’s been said in the past that the Isle of Anglesey should have its own TT. Rid­ing around the area on the north-west tip of Wales it’s easy to see why the idea was mooted.

The roads are chal­leng­ing, the scenery is spec­tac­u­lar (and it’s also close to Holy­head ferry ter­mi­nal, so it’s eas­ily ac­cessed from Ire­land). Our route here would be too long for a roads race, but it would make for a very en­ter­tain­ing and en­joy­able ride­out.

Start­ing at the junc­tion of the A55 – the main road that leads from Eng­land to Holy­head – and the A4080, head to­wards Aberf­fraw. This road takes you down to Anglesey cir­cuit, one of Bri­tain’s most en­thralling cir­cuits.

We con­tinue through the south of Anglesey be­fore cross­ing the A55 and head­ing north on the A5025 and loop­ing over the north of the is­land and cut­ting back south. At Llanyn­ghenedl, turn­ing left onto the B5109 brings us to Tre­for and a right turn onto the B5112 back to the start.

The roads are nar­row and there’s plenty of wildlife to take into ac­count, so it’s def­i­nitely best not to treat it as a TT. But it’s a damned good ride.
