BEYOND WALES SPORTIVE

Wales is an impressive place to cycle, not just for its Mountains but also its Towns and Villages and this is a stunning ride in a remarkable location.

This event has some flat spots that feel great to ride but the event will involve some climbs, you can’t come to Wales and not climb.

The respite comes in the descents.

However, there is still wonder to behold in the rivers and forests we pass and the amazing views along our route.

With aid stations and on course support, you ride, we will help you finish.
