Event Overview

More information about the event on the event website.

"I would maintain that the delight of cycling is not to be found in the arena of competition. In racing the threat of failure or the excitement of success generates euphoria at best, which seems vulgar in comparison with volupte.

The voluptuous pleasure that cycling can give you is delicate, intimate and ephemeral. It arrives, it takes hold of you, it sweeps you up and then leaves you again.

It is for you alone. It is a combination of speed and ease, force and grace.

It is pure happiness."

     Jean Bobet in 'Tomorrow we Ride'

Info for Riders

Enter early for the cheapest price. Both distances are the same price. You can choose which distance to ride on the road on the day. The Autumn Epic is a 155km sportive on wonderfully scenic low-traffic roads in mid-Wales. The event has 2200m of climbing making it a really physical challenge as well as a great day out on the bike. There's an official short-cut which loses about 25km and 300m of climbing. Both routes are well-signed and have two food stops, electronic timing, mobile mechanics and first aid and photographer. Motorcycle marshals add an extra degree of safety en route and our broomwagons will pick up those whose legs or bikes are too tired to make it all the way round. There's an Autumn Epic souvenir and free food for everyone at the finish. The Autumn Epic takes place every year on the first Sunday in October. This year will be the event's ninth year. The event has a reputation for its friendly atmosphere and professional organisation.
