Snowdonia 360
« on: July 31, 2021, 12:41:52 PM »
Hi,
In a few weeks Im off to Snowdonia for a couple of nights camping.
Ive bought a map from the official 360 website, but was wondering if anyone has a GPX route of it or knows where I can download one?

I can always plot it manually into Calimoto, but would prefer a proper GPX.

Thanks,
Matt

I wasn't aware of the Snowdonia 360 till now. Id heard of the SW Mob, sorry crew's, SW360...

FWIW I'd ditch the Anglesey sections, theres not a lot of memorable roads to ride on Anglesey istself, perhaps aside from the N/E coast road. the rest is just, meh.

You can cram in as much as you like on the Snowdonia, well as much as time permits.
If you are looking for inspriration I think we have done 3 or 4 group rides (megs/mini meets in Snowdonia theres routes a plenty. Just get an OS map and look for the twisties. Refuelling can be an issue  but you are never 'that' far from a petrol station assumign you dont' let the tank drain don to 2 bars or less... but you are out in the boonies so you have to refill early to make sure you  can keep going.

For me 360 in a day, especially if its lots of twisties, and there are platny to be had in North Wales is a loit. Say over 2 days then no problem. That may reflect my age, your mileage may differ.

Theres a GPX file to download on the AdventureBikeRider.com webpage. It doesnt appear to cover the whole 360 route but it may be a start for you to compile a GPX for the complete ride. Good luck and safe riding!

.... yes ... and the last one was nearly 6yrs ago (RIP Greg) ... it certainly 'broke in' my new 4 day old Tiger. :005: :008:



Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

Be sure to keep your eyes on speed, cameras pop up all over the place, average speed cameras, police regularly do stop checks

I've got the Snowdonia 360 route saved on myrouteapp which you can go into and download onto your sat nav or garmin if you wish but as Healdem said Anglesey is drab and best avoided.
Saying that we did spot a cider shop that supplied us with their own made cider which saw us through that nights camping.

Thanks all. Looks like Anglesey is maybe a section to avoid. Maybe lake Bala too, as I received my last 3 points there on my Ducati 748 in 2003!!

@coddy, Ill send you a PM.

There's so many great roads to ride in that area. You could probably make a week of it. granted you'd be doing sopme roads several times, but in essence there's not many meh roads. Depends where you are coming but the box bounding Llyn Peninsuls, Abergele, Newtown to Aberystsyth is stuffed full of great places to ride.

But then again IF you were stopped by Dai the Plod in 2003 you'd know that already. Or perhaps its ALL down to you that afortmentioned plod is lurking everywhere to catch 'innocent' riders out for the day, and has been sionce 2003...  :138:
