The Third Nut Sportive is an early season ride starting and finishing at Brecon Leisure Centre with the backdrop of the Brecon Beacons. A 110m and 65m cycle sportive with a fully signposted course. Both routes head out of Brecon following the A470 for a short while before crossing over the River Wye and up through Clyro to loop Kington.
