Cambrian Coast Sportive

Cycle Sportive , Wales – Saturday, 13 Sep 2014

Event Summary

Event Overview

The Cambrian Coast Sportive takes in some of the UK's most spectacular countryside. Starting from Aberdovey and set entirely within the Snowdonia National Park, the routes follow the coast and beaches, climb the mountains, skirt around lakes and descend through forests, making this arguably the most scenic sportive ride in the country.

In this sparsely populated part of the country, well over half of each route is done on minor back roads with smooth tarmac and where cars are seldom seen allowing riders to  ride happily side by side.

Highlights of the routes includes the spectacular Cregennan Lakes with its views over the Mawddach Estuary, the coastal road to Fairbourne (10km) right by the sea, the crossing of three estuary bridges and the mighty Bwlch y Groes (aka Hellfire Pass) which is the highest piece of tarmac in Wales and features in Simon Warren's '100 Greatest Cycling Climbs'.

The routes are comprehensively marshalled and sign-posted with 3 feed-stations (5 on the Long route) and riders benefit from electronic chip timing.

Take time to explore the routes, view the photos and register online via our simple rider entry form.   We look forward to welcoming you in September 2013.
