Potentially excellent link on quiet roads from central Mold, but it needs improvement.

Just another NHS clinic with a large car park and no cycle parking Murder on this street:

Northern entry to the Rec, Mold - with a link to the road to the left there could be a handy north-south cycle route.

Link needed from this path to the road to the left by the Rec in Mold

Link needed here for north-south route through the Rec, Mold

Cut-through from the Rec, Mold

Mold bus station - the cycle parking is now covered, and there's a recycling bin - see #88935

Priority over this side road is a welcome upgrade. It was a Sunday when I rode along it so I don't know how often it's obeyed, but the red sign suggests it's something drivers aren't used to.

A raised continuous footway has been placed at the junction on the left, one of several along this cycle route.

A raised continuous footway has been placed at the junction on the right, one of several along this cycle route. Which is just as well considering the BMW driver thinks the footway is his personal parking space.

Free car park at beginning of this cycle route along the Dee. Local artwork new in 2018

Cycleway bridge

Rail bridge

Millenium cycleway

No sign of cycle parking at Flint station (I think there are a few stands beyond the station building).

Plenty of space for cycle parking on the eastbound platform at Flint station.

Rather unsatisfactory cycle contraflow on the main street of Flint.

NCN route 5 is on the road through Flint

Sustrans marker and (presumably) cycle stands on NCN route 5 at Flint Castle.

Coastal route east from Flint

Link to the coastal route east from Flint

There's clearly a gap here in the North Wales coastal route.

Effectively shared-use footway on the climb west from Mold into the Clwydian Hills.

This is effectively a shared-use route to the Mold bypass roundabout.

Cycle stands and lockers at the bus station, Mold

Cut-through in Mold - ideal for cycling in both directions.

Cycle parking needed at the library/museum/tourist office in Mold

Good news! (see #57603) - cycle parking has appeared at Clwyd Theatr Cymru.

End of cycleway.

Poorly placed cycle stands - putting them at an ange might have persuaded people to use both sides.

Stepped link to the former railway through Mold

This could be a useful alternative for cyclists to the main road which has cut it off.

Gravestones moved to allow more car parking - not impressed.

Cycle lockers and stands at Caergwrle station

Cycle lockers and stands at Penyffordd station

Cycle lockers and stands at Hawarden station

Cut-through to Hawarden station - needs improving for cycling.

The signs seem to imply there might be a through route for cycles - but there isn't.

Entry to Hawarden castle park - just a short walk for those without permits, and I don't think they can cycle either.

Cycle route signs and road closed to motor vehicles, Hawarden

Flintshire County Council - all that space, just the right distance from Mold for cycling (a mile) and nothing but car parking.

One small shed for bikes, one for scooters or smokers?

The otherwise excellent Clwyd Theatr Cymru - all that space, just the right distance from town for cycling, and nowhere to park a bike.

The cycleway past Flintshire Civic Centre leaves you on this narrow lane, with warning signs to drivers.

Cycleway past Flintshire Civic Centre - obviously most people would see such a wide strip of tarmac as a car park so bollards are needed.

Cycleway at side-road, Flintshire Civic Centre

Start of cycleway to Flintshire Civic Centre - once you're safely off the A5119!

Access to supermarket on the old railway, Mold - with a bit of thought this could have been a useful two-way link for cyclists.

Rising bollards (and cones) at Mold bus station - No Entry except buses but in practice cyclists should be able to cut through too.

Nice path alongside the River Dee, although the layout around the end of this bridge is less than ideal

Once past all the barriers and obstructions, the path becomes a decent run alongside the river, if a little windy!

Narrow path under bridge made narrower by bridge support column (see also #53580)

Barriers at awkward position at top of ramp, which some cyclists struggled to get around as I approached (see also #53581)

The Dee Coastal Path, with plenty of signage, and barriers

Toucan crossing next to bridge

Shared-use footway over bridge

Signage for NCN5 turning right. The path straight on isn't really suitable for cycling, since it goes through a field and has kissing gates.

An A-frame at the foot of the ramp up to the combined foot/cycle/rail bridge

Another A-frame on path to the station

The junction for Chester and the pedestrian/cycle bridge tagged onto the side of the railway bridge

Signage for the adjacent station

Junction of NCN 5 and 568

The cycle path is shared with a bus service, hence the rising bollards

The cycle route goes onto a segregated path at this point

Signed route through industrial estate

Barrier at end of path, and van needlessly parked partly on cycleway

Barriers at the entrance to another short section of path

NCN568 shares the access road to the MOD range

Barriers positioned so that they don't hinder cyclists too much
