New company offers guided bike tours in Anglesey
As we prepare to holiday back home in the UK, a new business on Anglesey could be laid to take advantage of the growing popularity of cycling, helping locals and visitors to enjoy cycling on the island. .
Green Lane Bike Tours was about to kick off when lockdown hit last spring. Now they are even more keen to help more people enjoy cycling, offering guided and self-guided bike tours on Anglesey.
They promise to provide “a great day out on a bike” and explain that what they do is take people on specially designed, easy and quiet routes around the island.
The company can help people steer clear of “honeypots” by introducing their guests to more unusual destinations.
“Each route has several interesting places to visit, as well as plenty of stops to enjoy the views and surrounding wildlife,” says director and tour leader Eli Elis-Williams.
“We share stories related to local history and the places we visit, and enjoy spotting wildflowers and birds, as well as enjoying views of the enviable seascapes of Snowdonia and Anglesey along the way .”
With more and more people taking up cycling as a leisure and exercise activity during ‘lockdown’ or in recent years, Green Lane Bike Tours enables people to see the best of what Anglesey has to offer, while by following a “green” and healthier lifestyle and leisure activity.
“We want to show people that cycling can be a viable option for recreation or commuting,” Eli adds.
Green Lane Bike Tours promises a “Covid-safe” outdoor activity and has followed both the Covid-19 tourism industry standard “We’re Good to Go” and the Covid-19 awareness course for the sports and leisure sector.
Customers can bring their own bike or rent a bike or e-bike, which will be delivered at the start of the route.
A Welsh speaker with a degree in Welsh history, Eli Elis-Williams is sure people will enjoy hearing stories of Anglesey’s rich past.
‘We have already received feedback from customers wanting to learn more about Anglesey’s history,’ she said.
Guided bike tours are easily done with plenty of stops and a well-deserved opportunity to enjoy a cake at a local cafe as well.
