About the Event

Info for Riders

Cardiff Roubaix will be held on Monday 28 August 2017, starting and finishing at Maindy Velodrome in Cardiff. It features eleven unpaved/gravel sectors, farm tracks and bridleways, ranging from 300m to 4100m in length, and totalling 27km. The event is intended to mimic the professional one-day Classic ‘Paris-Roubaix’ (as far as is possible in this area), and as such is designed to be ridden on road bikes. The route is located entirely on the flat Roubaix-like landscape of the coastal plain to the east of Cardiff and Newport, adjacent to the Severn Estuary, sandwiched between the mountains and the sea. The course starts in Cardiff and then heads east towards the first three unpaved/gravel sectors, and then on towards Newport before returning to the iconic Maindy Stadium, where the event finishes on a large outdoor velodrome (as does Paris-Roubaix). A well-stocked feed station, a broom wagon and medical support will be provided.
