Voted the UK’s best sportive in 2012 by RoadCyclingUK, the 92 mile route is once again taking place on closed roads, offering participants an unparalleled experience of riding in this spectacular area with full use of the course Cyclists will pass through quaint Denbighshire and Wrexham villages such as Llangollen, Carrog, and Minera, taking in the spectacular views of the Clwydian range (an area of outstanding beauty), while tackling lung busting climbs such as Panorama, The Shelf, World’s End and the infamous Horseshoe Pass.
