Snowdon Voluntary Cycling Agreement
To help avoid accidents involving cyclists and walkers when the paths to the summit of Snowdon are extremely busy from May to September a voluntary agreement has been negotiated between:
The Snowdonia National Park
Gwynedd County Council
Welsh Cycling Union
International Mountain Bicycling Association
It has been agreed that between the hours of 10.00 am and 5 pm from 1st May to 30th September cyclists should not cycle on the Snowdon bridleways shown on the map below.
Bridleways affected by the agreement
Bwlch Maesgwm bridleway
It is expected that all cyclists will act responsibly and observe this agreement, sometimes referred to as a 'voluntary ban'. The alternative may be a complete, actual ban on Snowdon's bridleways.
Please follow the off-road Cycling Code
Stay on the bridleway
Give way to horses and walkers
leave gates as you find them
Avoid severe braking
In the event of a serious accident on the mountain dial 999 and ask for North Wales Police.
REMEMBER! Cyclists who ride "recklessly and without due care and attention...or take part in a race or trial of speed" contravene the Road Traffic Act 1988.
