- Snowdon – a different question
Rangers – Down yes, up no
Rhyd Dhu – Down yes (harder than Rangers apparently), up no
Only way up which is nearly all rideable is from Llanberis. Every other way is going to be 99% hike-a-bike carrying.
Edit – Oh yes, forgot about the Telegraph valley, I imagine that would be a rideable climb too.Posted 4 years agolucienMember
Am thinking of staying at Beddgelert Forest and doing Snowdon from the door and not taking a car; so…
Is the 1st part of the Rangers path from the A4085 rideable (either up or down, or both)?
Is the Rhyd Ddu Path, marked as a Bridleway on the map, navigable by bike, again up or down or both?

Was up there Sunday in the fog, bloody freezing at the top of Ranger’s!!
Perfectly possible to ride up from the A4085 to the Telegraph Valley turning. Really fast back down too.
The Llanberis path used to be 50/50 ride/hike but more of it is being made to be like SOAP’s picture (bad enough walking on the stuff!) so getting less rideable. Had loads of helibags full of slabs on the side for this round of ‘repairs’ so will get worse.Posted 4 years ago

I rode almost all of Llanberis 15-odd years ago. I don’t remember it being particularly steep very often.
The zig-zag path up through the quarry?
Other way from Dinorwig up to Marchlyn Mawr?
Up the Fachwen?
Sling to Mynydd Llandegai and down to Bethesda?
Brynrefail to Deiniolen isn’t too bad, but the last bit up past the SPAR and back up to bus stop quarry is a genuine, utter, complete bastard.
Up Ceunant Street past the campsite up to Telegraph Valley?
Any of those not, in the biblical sense, properly, horribly, steep?Posted 4 years ago
