We hired mountain bikes from Chris at Birmingham Garage, Barmouth for a very reasonable £14 per day. It made a change for us cycling rather than walking and we certainly got to see more of this beautiful estuary, several herons and marvellous views and thoroughly enjoyed crossing the wooden bridge at the beginning. We turned back at Penmaenpool, and were glad we did the trail from Barmouth as it seemed more downhill on the way back, which we were grateful for as the rain had set in and we were rather tired, so bear this in mind if like ourselves, you rarely cycle. Yes the trail is flat, but with chunky mountain bike tyres, it is still quite hard work if you last went on a bike as a child!
