Event Summary

Event Overview

The Snowdonia Cycle Fest Sportive 2018

The Snowdonia Cycle Fest Cyclocross Challeneg is set in Snowdonia, starting and finishing in the picturesque village of Llanberis, at the foot of Snowdon. The route will descend a section of one of Snowdon's paths, the only MTB event to do so. In fact it’s the only MTB event in this part of the world! You will face long stiff climbs, gravel and paved tracks, forest roads and tarmac to link it all together!

This year will see a week end celebrating everything to do with cycling in what's regarded as the 'Outdoor Capital of the UK, Llanberis, Snowdonia. On the week end of 14th and 15th of April we will host the first ever Snowdonia Cycle Fest. On Saturday we will host a road bike and a Cyclo Cross Challenge and Sunday the return of 'The Snowdonia MTB Challenge' now re named The Snowdonia Cycle Fest MTB Challenge.

On the fild in Llanberis we will have various companies in the industries setting up with some amazing bargains, and bikes to demo to try out, as well as an event for the children.

Saturday night the Heights will host a band, and the beers will be flowing and food available for everyon.

The Snowdonia Cycle Sportive 2018.

It is challenging, but very rewarding! It will challenge your riding and fitness! The route will take you to exciting places, and unless you were local might not get to ride. Up in to the mountains, down the other side, pass stunning lakes with Snowdon in view from various angles. On to the stunning Welsh coast before returning back in to the mountains for the finish in stunning Llanberis!

It’s not a race! It’s a challenge, and a challenge it is!! 

There are three options so it's open to everyone who has a bike and good level of fitness.

The short one at 34 miles will circumnavigate Snowdon. Anyone can complete this one. There are plenty of time to get training. The ride is a classic, and the scenery amazing.

The medium is a 60 miler with a mixture of coast and mountains.

And the long is a challenging 90 miles on stunning Welsh coast and mountains,

Event T-shirts can be ordered on the website www.bryniaumtb.co.uk prior to the event and collected at the event HQ on the day. Or email gareth@bryniaumtb.co.uk with your order.
