About the Event

Info for Riders

On top of the usual marathon action this round of the series will feature once again a round of the Vitus Road Sportive on the Sunday of the event weekend (5th August). Around 400-500 riders will opt for either one of the two fantastic but demanding sportives on offer. These routes will take you through some stunning valleys and over a couple of memorable mountains. The routes start by travelling north along the Llanthoney valley through the black mountains over Hay Bluff, here you will see stunning views of the Wye valley and the picturesque town of Hay on Wye. Then after descending down and following the Wye Valley you travel west towards Brecon where you’ll join the Usk Valley and follow the Monmouth canal to Llangynidr and the second big climb of the day over Llangynidr Mountain overlooking the Heads of the Valleys. From here you descend steeply down the notorious descent off the Blorenge to the Usk valley, meandering back towards Abergavenny. Both routes are also likely to be popular and bring in a lot o
