Event Summary

Event Overview

The Velo 2 Velo Carmarthen Sportive starts and finishes at Carmarthen Park with a lap of the 405m velodrome.

 A 66 mile cycle sportive with a fully signposted route.

 The route heads out of Carmarthen following the B4300 towards Llandeilo and onwards to Llandovery. From here you head into the Brecon Beacons for a few challenging climbs and quiet country lanes, before heading back towards Carmarthen and that velodrome lap to finish the day!
