For more information on off-road bike paths in Snowdonia, visit us on The Framed Bicycle Co. on High Street in Llanberis Snowdonia To avoid accidents with cyclists and walkers when the roads at the top of Snowdon are extremely busy from May to September, a voluntary agreement has been negotiated: let`s be honest: Snowdon is one of those bike rides that is on all cycling lists. However, due to the large number of hikers during the summer months, Snowdon`s voluntary agreement on the bike was concluded between the two; Snowdonia National Park, Gwynedd County Council, CTC, Welsh Cycling Union and International Mountain Bicycling Association. Framed Bicycle Co as a bike shop and enthusiastic cyclists ask you to respect the agreement to ensure the safety of all mountain users. We recommend that you record your journey until later, regardless of the season, because if you make efforts to push up, you ideally want to reduce the amount of traffic you would have to hit while going down. So, please, stick to the agreement so as not to push up just to press down. All cyclists are expected to act responsibly and comply with this agreement, sometimes referred to as a “voluntary ban”.” The alternative could be the total and real ban on Snowdon roads. The agreement was negotiated between Snowdonia National Park, Gwynedd County Council, Cycling UK, Welsh Cycling Union and the International Mountain Bicycling Association. 1. Due to its popularity, Snowdon is the subject of an access agreement.

We, the ATVs, agree to stay on the mountain between May 1 and September 31 between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. “We look forward to the situation and therefore ask cyclists to cooperate to meet the hours set out in the agreement.” The agreement has worked well for many years and shows that all users can share the paths successfully, but it depends on whether individuals respect the agreement, which most people do. Since it is a voluntary agreement, it is up to individuals to respect the restrictions. Cycling UK is calling on citizens to do so for the safety and enjoyment of all and to ensure that the right to enjoy the highest mountain in Wales is not put at risk by a small minority. Peter Rutherford, Access to Snowdonia National Park: “We ask ATVs to respect the agreement between Snowdonia National Park and various groups of ATV users and to stay away from the Llanberis, Snowdon Ranger and Rhyd Ddu lines from May 1 to the end of September between 10am and 5pm. The agreement was reached to avoid possible clashes between incredibly large numbers of walkers and cyclists during rush hour. It has worked well for many years and has shown that all users can share the paths successfully, but it depends on the cyclists respect the agreement, which most people do.
