Cilcain and Keegan's Lane route is a mountain bike route of 11.4 miles that starts just above the village of Cilcain in the Clwydian Range in North Wales. The route includes some of the best descents these hills have to offer including Keegan’s lane, at the bottom of which the famous footballer used to live (so I’m told, as I ride bikes). The ride has great variety with fast as you dare rocky double track, flowing singletrack, a big climb and some stunning views.
1. The ride starts from the view point car park above Cilcain (GR170652). Turn right from the car park the follow the lane up a gentle climb to a crossroad junction (GR166653). Go across the junction then climb the lane straight on. Go past a farm on the right where the lane becomes a dirt track. Bear right then left on the double track through the trees, then immediately after leaving the trees bear right then left again.
