Event Summary

Event Overview

Part of the Aberystwyth Cycling Festival weekend (20-28 May 2018).

Sponsored by Continental Tyres, this sportive in one of the most rural parts of Wales promises quiet roads, challenging terrain and a very warm welcome to all visitors.

Choose from four different distances, all fully supported with feed stations and mobile mechanic vehicles out on the course. The event is being run by the same organisers that have brought the Pearl Izumi Tour Series to Aberystwyth, and who have run countless road races in the area since the 1960's.

Why not spend all weekend in this University coastal town to enjoy the thrills & spills of the Tour Series professional criterium on the Friday evening, the Consitution Hill Downhill MTB races on Saturday before taking on your own challenge on Sunday in this Wild West Sportive. 

Rides of 28, 45, 62 & 106 miles will be offered.

More details about the course etc are available on our website www.abercyclefest.com
