Voluntary Restrictions

The high level use of the bridleways to the summit of Snowdon for off-road cycling has led to serious concerns. Exceptionally high numbers of walkers use the Llanberis, Rhyd Ddu and Snowdon Ranger paths, particularly during the summer months, and because the Law (Section 30, Countryside Act 1968) requires that cyclists must give way to pedestrians at all times, this combination can make for an un-enjoyable and frustrating ride for mountain bikers.

The following voluntary agreement to remedy the problem has been negotiated between the cycling organisations, the Sports Council for Wales, Gwynedd County Council and Snowdonia National Park Authority. 10.00am to 5.00pm from 1st May - 30th September.
