Event Overview

Back by popular demand, we return to Crickhowell (near Abergavenny) for a second time, with 2 routes on offer; 50 and 90 miles.

The route starts by travelling North up through the National Park to Hay on Wye, then back down past the scenic Llangorse Lake. From here up a renowned climb onto Llangattock mountain, across the top of some of the Welsh valleys, through Brynmawr and Blaenavon and then down to some nice quiet rural roads to the finish.

The shorter course misses out the climb up onto Llangattock Mountain and travels along the valley floor alongside the canal. 

Once back you' will be welcomed with a well deserved cuppa, homemade cake, finisher T-shirt and certificate showing your ride time.

There is free camping and parking for all riders and supporters. At the event village you will find showers, toilets, bike wash, refreshments and a wide range of stands and stalls offering all things cycling!
