@simon_nuttall @cyclestreets Here's a good one for you: Mona Road, Menai Bridge, Anglesey https://t.co/Y4Qs3TdSRy Another angle on it: https://twitter.com/paulgannonbike/status/1113352496330809344

Cyclists on ncr 5 & 8 crossing the Menai Straits on Telford’s suspension bridge, which is approaching its bicentenary. The bridge carries the London-Holyhead road, made to help link members of the Union. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki ... [more]

An eastbound cyclist on ncr 8 takes a slight detour to see the famously-named station. The sign would probably be just a blur to passengers on the line's famous express trains https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chester_and_Holyhead_Railway h ... [more]

Excellent stainless steel cycle racks near this bay which is popular with coasteerers and kayakers.

Road to Breakwater Country Park, on the former railway line from the quarry to the Holyhead breakwater.

NCN route 566 crossing the former Amlwch railway branch - maybe one day a level route will be put in to the left across the former railway.

Closed section of old road reaching a rather odd junction entering Amlwch - there should be a No Entry sign to the right, and a dropped kerb. NCN route signs just visible to the left.
